Capturing a family session has many aspects. I always want to allow each member to shine, and also want to collectively capture the family unit and the way they are bonded together. This sweet family was wonderful to work with, and had plenty of smiles to go around. They chose some really great outfits for their shoot together, and the soft neutrals and black hues worked very cohesively and stood out against the rich greenery around us. They were up for anything when it came to posing, and I especially loved when little brother hopped up into the tree for that unique shot.
We chose the LIU Post Arboretum for the shoot, because of its large campus. There was cool architecture and beautiful gardens, and we could have stayed all day enjoying our time together. When I select a family location, I always try to find one where we have space to move around. I have found when we get to adventure together a little bit, everyone loosens up and has a great time, and it even creates some brand new memories!
