    Behind the Lens: Richmond Family Session

    More Resources: Behind the Lens 

    You're in for a special one! This Virginia family session had the sun beaming in and it illuminated their sweet love for each other. They are actually related to my integrator, Kat Schmoyer, which made it extra fun for me. With just Mom, Dad and their baby I had to get creative in posing. How do you capture a diverse gallery when only 2 people cans stand and respond? You'll see below! The beautiful thing about babies at this age, is even if they aren't paying attention or giving you smiles they are adorable. As a photographer, and this time, a Richmond family photographer, I'm creating memories and still framing this time in their life. They'll treasure these photos long after that little one goes off to college. You can see the entire session in my membership Behind the Lens!

    Field Session with Mom, Dad and Baby

    When you're working with a little one I tend to treat this similarly to a couples session. You don't need a full 30-45 minutes when everyone is cooperating! You can see how I created variety and worked with a bright sun. It was a bit high for what I like, but putting their backs to the sun helped eliminate uneven light beams on their faces.
