I love chasing little ones around and letting them be themselves during a session. It's so much more my style and it's a win win in my opinion... as a parent you get realistic photos that speak to your children's personalities and your children are actually willing to tolerate it (for the most part)! I consider my family portrait sessions lifestyle portraiture because the overly posed shots are probably not what my clients come to me for. In fact, if a client really wants a lot of 'perfection' like that, I likely refer them to someone who is much more skilled in that area than I could ever pretend or want to be. Yes, I will try to get a nice picture of your children sitting together and smiling (see below), but I will tell you, more often than not we get about one of those if we are lucky. For the remainder of the session, I love focusing on how your children interact and the phase that they are in now. That might mean playing tag, that might mean singing, that might mean a lot of things. It might not be perfect to everyone but it's definitely perfect to me, and I hope it's perfect for all of the Mommas and Dads and grandparents that are able to cherish real photos of their children filled with joy!
