Have you ever had the daunting task of convincing family members to get excited about upcoming family portraits? Most dads would rather be watching sports in comfy clothes and the kids would prefer not to be threatened to say “cheeeeeese,” or lose their video games privileges for the week. The thought of having to get everyone on board can be a real reason for procrastinating that session for so long.
If you’re longing for an easier way, take heed. JDP lays the foundation for a fun, efficient experience right from the very beginning. You’ll receive help with coordinating outfits. Kids have the chance to meet with the “stranger” behind the camera in advance so there’s a level of familiarity the day of the session. We’ll lay the foundation for how things will run and get everyone excited for this adventure! We’ll plan a well thought out experience that keeps everyone moving, effectively capturing all your must-have images. We make the best use of your time so dad can get back to the game, or the family can head off to a post-session celebratory meal! Most importantly, we have a deliberate, carefully planned workflow that includes plenty of interaction, games, FUN!
Yes, those formal portraits are a priority, but in order to get those beautiful, natural expressions we find ways to get you engaged with one another, to draw out those lovely moments of family togetherness and connectedness. You’ll relax when you see your family at ease during our session together. You’ll not only love the imagery we capture, but you’ll love the experience you and your family share while being photographed. The time we spend photographing your family is special, and we will make sure you all feel that!
Take a look at the fun we had with this family! Traditional portraiture with games and silliness sprinkled throughout kept those genuine smiles shining!
