Everything about this season is simply perfect. We are not ready to give up the shades of muted colors and our plaid blankets just yet! This time of year we also know that there is a lot of family photo sessions going on and we also know all to well how hard family sessions can be! The planning, the outfits, the location…. how am I going to get my kids to hold still for two seconds to get a photo of all of us? We have those same struggles too but if we could give one word of advice it would be to just relax and enjoy the moment as much as possible! The best shots are those when everyone is not posed perfectly and your family is captured in the raw. If you have really little peanuts it can be helpful to bring little props and things to help keep them distracted. These props can lend the images as well and even create a little bit of a theme. We are loving these candid hot chocolate in the woods shots by Ren at Studio 29! What problem doesn’t a marshmallow fix?!
