There's a rumor going around that family portrait sessions have to be awkward, involve matching white tee shirts and ridiculous poses on the beach.
Welp, they don't.
I've had the pleasure of photographing two lifestyle sessions for the modern family recently... two sisters at the Biltmore Village Inn B&B and a mother and son in their downtown loft.
Family sessions are exactly what you want them to be. Loved ones, favorite spots that bring up beautiful memories, clothes that make you feel amazing and minimal posing.
This sister session was a surprise from one to other and just for fun!
The original plan was to venture out into the woods for beautiful scenery but they both were feeling sick my the time the session rolled around. New plan! We roamed the grounds of the B&B they were staying at to capture memories of their stay there. Going with the flow is key.
The downtown loft session was with a newly single mother and her 4 year old son. They were currently house sitting this killer Asheville loft and wanted to make the most of their time there! So they dressed up, read books, played with legos and ate snacks while I captured it all.
Play time speaks to them more than a pose in front of a backdrop.
