Did you know you can purchase a physical gift card, delivered in a beautiful gift box, to give to someone in any denomination from Firefly Nights Photography? If you want to give someone a present in celebration or in thanks, photography makes a wonderful option. This grandmother was given such a gift by her coworkers when she retired, and she saved it for when her whole family was in town to get some lovely pictures of them all together. Due to the travel schedule, we did the pictures at their home. These kids were troopers, as they were utterly exhausted from a long travel, but they were great. I tried to go quickly for their benefit before the youngest hit meltdown stage.
When going to people’s homes, I’m always nervous about what I will find in terms of lighting and background. Thankfully, we found some shade by this large tree.
Standing or sitting – I tend to love a cuddled up family pose while sitting, especially with toddlers who can then snuggle into a parent.
This older sister was simply stunning. I couldn’t help but spend some time one on one with her.
Then we moved to their patio. Stairs make for great posing of families. And I love all the shades of blue that they wore.
We did more family pictures and break outs, but we also had to do their fun uncle, who they decided to tickle torture. I couldn’t help but laugh when this happened.
The weather is getting warmer out there, which means it is time to start thinking about outdoor sessions again! Of course, you are always welcome to come into the studio, but outdoors will soon be available to us as an option. Don’t wait until the high heat of late summer when you will be dripping sweat (no one wants to be sweaty in pictures). Look at those calendars and get your family sessions booked soon.
