This family contacted me about photographing them in their Lake Norman home and told me that they wanted their pictures to have a lifestyle feeling, more candid and relaxed than posed. Mom also mentioned that they have always wanted a family photo of everyone throwing confetti. HECK YEAH! They had other Charlotte photographers work in their home and were concerned that the pictures would look similar. That is the cool thing about photographers… we are all artists and have a different eye for lighting, composition and interact with families in completely different ways.
The shoot went really well. Baby P was super cooperative and we managed to get lots of really sweet shots of C with his little sister. The surprise came when we decided that we would try to get their pup in some photos. They warned me that she was not a well behaved dog for photographers. I think the stars aligned because we got SO MANY CUTE photos of this dog with his fur-less siblings! It was amazing! Photographing dogs is always tricky. It’s hard to explain to them what you want them to do. “Not too much tongue… smile with your eyes”… haha! This pup worked my camera!
There was another really sweet moment where Dad was reading to C in his room and he almost fell asleep! I was thinking that if he did fall asleep, we could pose him like a newborn and that would have been a first for me!
The whole family was so pleased at the outcome of their photo shoot. So am I. Thank you SO much G family….
