This family session on Belle Isle was so sweet and filled with chaos and laughter and tantrums and love, just as many of them are, and it was perfect. When Destiny reached out about a short family session, we settled on Belle Isle since the fall leaves were still hanging on and there’s plenty of space to sprawl out and run around.
This 40 minute session was the perfect length of time for Destiny’s kids and after some chasing around, peanut M&Ms and lots of cuddles, it wound up being so fun for everyone.
I’m not a mom, so I can’t speak from experience, but for a lot of moms and dads I work with, family photos with young kids can feel stressful – how will the kids behave? Will someone spill on their shirts? Will we get one with everyone smiling and looking at the camera? Part of why I love this session was because from the beginning Destiny had no expectations and let her kids be themselves. For a few seconds here and there, there was some resistance but the rest, it was fun! As much as possible, go into the session with the sole intention of being present with your family and having fun. The sweet, intimate and yes, even funny moments will follow.
