This beautiful family came to me for a fun one year summer session for their baby girl. We wanted to be sure to get some good family group shots as well, plus you guys know I’m always going to try and get a good variety of shots. As any Omaha Photographer can attest- Lake Zorinksy is an excellent place with a variety of unique locations for outdoor photos.
As you can see, she TOTALLY loved me. 😀 OMG I felt soooo bad you guys. She doesn’t like being around new people and despite my very BEST efforts I couldn’t convince her that I was actually super cool. Luckily we were able to get plenty of good shots of her with her family as well. I was super sneaky and even got a couple where she didn’t look like I was torturing her. All jokes aside, the family was very understanding and expected that reaction from her. Even big sister jumped in to help as much as we would let her!
Bribery is King
I’ve been photographing children for a long time (read 7 years now) and the one thing that ALWAYS works is goldfish. Now this may be a very short lived distraction, so I had to act super quick! But in the end we got a great set of her and her daddy giggling over the treat. I know they aren’t posed perfectly in these etc but I absolutely love candid moments and the magic that happens in those moments.
When we originally scheduled this session we were trying to do it in late June. However big sister unfortunately busted her head open and needed stitches the day we were scheduled for the photos. Obviously no one was in the mood to get dressed up and take family photos so naturally we rescheduled. And then, on our reschedule date, poor mom broke her foot! LOL. I feel like the universe was telling us to wait until August to shoot their photos and we got lucky with an absolutely impeccable day! The weather was calling for rain and storms in Omaha that day, but the rain passed, the clouds made for impeccable light, and the sunset was to die for that night. So, despite all odds, we ended up with a wonderful evening, some gorgeous photos and a great time!
If you are in need of family photos or an Omaha Photographer this fall, send me a message! I am hoping to book some fall sessions and meet new families around here!
I can’t wait to create beautiful, timeless, and special pieces of art with you and your family!
