Bring Out the Fun Part 2! Two Additional Photography Prompts

Part Two

Well I heard so much great feedback from my previous post on Three Games I LIke to Play During Family Photo Sessions that I decided to do Round Two! Tell me what you think!

Race to Me (children ages 3-10)  – Sometimes this turns into Red Light, Green Light but either way kids always love the challenge of me betting that they can’t run fast enough to catch me.  For this game I typically have a wide angle lens, such as my Sigma 20mm 1.4 or Sigma 15mm 2.8 fisheye, and use a shutter speed of 1/800 second or higher.  

Staring Contest (for siblings or parent/child) – I think this game works especially well for moms and kids.  Mommas know just how to get their child to finally give into the staring contest and burst into laughter!  I like to take a wide angle image and then get in close to capture those big laughs!

I specialize in candid family, child and high school senior portraits in the Oklahoma City and the Dallas metroplexes. I also photograph events, sports and headshots.

Session are booked approximately 1.5 -2 hours prior to sunset or within an hour of sunrise.

I can most definitely help you with that! After ten years of photographing clients, I have learned what photographs well and what doesn't. Upon booking a session with me, I am happy to connect you with some tried and true styling tips. I will also help you with your specific outfit choices.

Yep! I sure can! Aside from my own "spirited" children, I was an elementary school teacher for seven years. Not even the grumpiest dad or emotional teen scares me :). Just show up ready to have fun + love on your people. I will do the rest!

I LOVE to travel with clients! I have been across the globe photographing some amazing families. Booking a travel session with me is way more affordable than you think - plus I provide you with much more than just a standard session. Click on my travel portfolio to see images from the beach, Canada, Bali, New York City and more!
