In honor of Mother's Day this weekend, I'm sharing some photos of my family. I've been wanting to schedule a photo shoot with another photographer and probably still will at some point, but this weekend I thought why not get out there and take some myself.
Honestly I wasn't sure how they would turn out. I knew I could handle the settings, but getting everyone to pose and interact in a natural way was not as easy while also being in the photos. Let's just say, I snapped a few more pictures than I would during a normal session and ended up with fewer usable photos.
However, I am happy with the ones I did get and the girls each came up with their own poses which I think turned out well.
We bought our house about 6 months ago and I thought our front porch would be a nice spot.
These are all in our back yard. We have this beautiful tree line that I have discovered is a perfect spot for pictures.
This was my youngest daughter's pose idea.
