This is a fun event and in my opinion should should qualify for Trip Advisor!!
Usually Mom wants to do this and everyone wants to keep Mom happy so they go along with it.
In my experience, the dads are quite pleased to find that this photo shoot is actually fun for the whole family! It is a bonding experience!
Kids love me and I love kids... maybe because I encourage running, jumping and usually getting their clothes wet at the end! (Bring towels and change of clothes if you are going to dinner after....)

Tips for a successful Photo session:
Think about what you might wear as a group. Look on Pinterest. I have an entire board dedicated to outfits for beach sessions! Also I talk about prepping for your session on one of my blogs. Avoid fussy collars... it's windy out here! Also avoid pin strip shirts! FEED THE BABIES RIGHT BEFORE OR ON THE WAY... NO, NOT OREOS... HA... Maybe a baggie of cherrios. I'm not against bribery! You can straighten the kids out later... but for this hour we need happy kids, so don't put too much stress on the babes. This photo session is FUN and PLAY TIME. If it is July or August and you have a "sweaty" man, bring him an extra shirt! My editing is limited to straightening your horizon, fixing a bruise or mole, aslo removing extra people from your photos. In my experience cool colors and pastels just look more relaxing than warm colors (reds, orange)... Also navy blue has been popular for a couple of years, I'll be honest, it's not my favorite. However, baby blue, sky blue, teal, dusty rose look beautiful. Will your family be jumping and running or sitting in the sand? Your outfit will have to accommodate these activities! Call me if you'd like to get my input. Bring towels and change of clothes for little ones that may get wet at the end! Also you can look on my FB page for real families and what they chose to wear for their session. It can be an eye opener.
Weddings are glorious occasions! Some weddings are quick 1-2 hour sunset weddings and other weddings last up to 8 hours starting with "getting ready", the ceremony and reception, as well as family photos and romantic photos... so I will need to know a little bit about your plans to give you a quote. There is a wedding contract right above for you! Take a moment and see what my policies are! Here are some of the questions I will ask you when you call me or email me... How big is your wedding? How many guests do you expect? How many people in the bridal party? How much time do you think you will need? How long do you want me to stay at the reception? Do you have a big send off at the end of the reception? What time will you want me there? Do you want "getting ready" photos? Will you and your groom be doing a "first look"? It's fun to talk about and even if you are just in the beginning planning stages, I have a lot of experience so I might offer you some free advice if nothing else! Please call! 850.249.8686
