Family Photos (behind the scenes)

I know this blog is mostly about wedding photography and ideas however I wanted to share a family session. Mainly because it was our own lead and associate's family (Janel & Tad)! & Secondly because parents are often stressed out during photo sessions thinking their family is the only crazy and difficult one to shoot. Most photographers only show the polished, finished photos and not the outtakes...

 Look at Jack's awkward fake smile...all little kids have them! I do love Miss Molly staring up sweetly at him though. & Tad's natural smile.
