The Siegel Family wanted winter family photos and Mono Cliffs was a placed that they went to quite often to play. Unposed, fun, relaxed session was the goal and capturing all the moments was key. “it was effortless” said Heidi and that’s important to me to photograph my families while they are having fun and photographing them playing, hanging out and just being a family out for a couple of hours. The weather was ideal and we started the day out with hot chocolate, then went for a walk and played as I photographed all of it without any stiff posing.
The winter family session started with a round of hot chocolate.
winter sessions with snow squalls, sunny breaks, and cloudy skies are idea for a great variety of images
unposed and natural emotions are what my photographs are all about. this was completely spontaneous as she went to dad to play.
journalistic style photography is about being able to capture images on the fly as they happen……you have to be ready at all times.
lifestyle family photography while thinking outside the box because you just have one scene and if your not creative all the images will look the same. immediately after this shot was taken Jordan ran back and sat on my back as I was lying flat on my stomach and teased me with mitten kisses….priceless
again unposed! she just went up there and sat down and I was ready for it.
if you let children be children they will give you all the moments you need to photograph an amazing family session.
casually exploring looking for big sticks to play with while I photograph Noah being Noah
dressing in neutrals for family sessions then adding pops of colour with accessories will give you variety in your images. here they took off their coats and hats just for a minute while I got this shot
family sessions involve photographing the entire family and I also pay attention to each individual family member and special groupings
as they were getting their coats back on I’m still shooting because you never know when a moments going to happen and I got this shot of Jordan just cracking up
I love these winter hats for photographs
I asked them to stand close together and this is what i got….effortless.
fun portrait of just the kids
here I just asked them to run towards me holding hands and not to stop ….. just run right past me.
here the whole family is walking towards me as I shoot away journalistic style……..you do not always have to be looking at the camera for great family photos. It takes the pressure off and no fake smiles here.
these are great candidates for next years christmas card
I will just put you together and let you be you
Mono Cliffs has amazing trails and backdrops for family photography
