No photo shoot is picture perfect — And that's what I love about them

Afraid your children will won't be perfect during a photo shoot? You aren’t alone

Not to stress, there is perfection in the imperfections

Five children sitting on a bench.Sometime you need to let kids be kidsThis is the kind of photo I adore. The ones that you will remember. They may not be perfect, but they are real.

 

When scheduling a photo shoot, you probably imagine your beautiful family, smiling perfectly into the camera, following directions to the tee. Every snap of the camera shutter more perfect than the last.

That’s not the way it happens. Ever.  Kids playing on their dad. Let them be littleThis may not be a photo most would hang on a wall, but it is my favorite of this session.

And that’s OK.

Actually, it's awesome.

I love capturing the real personalities of the people I am photographing.  Even more than that, I love the imperfect shots between the ones you will likely hang on the wall. The outtakes.

Why do I write this? To let you know not to expect perfection from your children during shoots. And to reassure you, reading this, that when I say it is OK, and to let them have some fun, I truly mean it.

I will make sure you have the ones to frame and put on your walls, but I also want to make sure that you have some that show who your family is behind the scenes. Your children won’t always be able to climb on your shoulders. They won’t always want to pretend they are dinosaurs. They (probably) won’t always throw themselves on the ground when they are supposed to be smiling for photos.

That’s OK. Really!

Let me capture those moments for you as well. As frustrating as it can be when your kids aren’t perfectly well behaved, someday you will miss it.

Plus, then you will have photos to bribe them 20 years down the road.

Spring weather is just about here and my schedule is filling up quickly. If you would like to schedule a session with Lynn Brennan Photography, contact me today!
