This sweet Jeffery Open Space family portrait session was a joy to capture. This was the couple's first baby and first time having family portraits taken. This little guy made us work for those smiles we captured and was giving us so many adorable expressions throughout the session.
This session was during a very busy time of year and it was a challenge to find a spot without people in the background, however, this is one place that has many beautiful locations to use as a backdrop for your family sessions.
At the beginning of the sessions with real little ones, I like to tell my clients that the baby is in control of what we get because they have needs that need to be addressed quickly and will need time to soothe. For some reason, he didn't like it when Mom and Dad were sitting down and that meant we had to change up the poses. Being flexible during a session is something to keep in mind.
That sweet smile just warms my heart! Once we laid him on the blanket he just lit up and was smiling and talking. Made for great engagement between the family to end this family portrait session on a high.
