This lifestyle family photography in Waconia was incredibly fun!
I want to do more at-home family photoshoots this year. I adore them. Jessica and her family are awesome to help me with my goal and I’m so thankful for them.
The most fantastic thing about doing an in-home family photoshoot is the pictures are deeply personal to you. A bonus: Your photographer coming to your home means you don’t need to think about the stress of getting young, active children into a car.
For lifestyle family photos like this we plan a few activities to do. We start out doing the activities. Then if I want to change the posing I direct you. Sometimes I have additional ideas while we’re shooting. We usually sneak in a semi-posed family portrait too. So this photography is kind of posed. However it’s more flexible than a traditional family portrait shoot. Perfectly okay for your children to not sit still the whole time.
I love the little quiet moments during our shoots just as much as the smiles and giggles.
Fun games like tickling mom and dad or kicking the ball help us switch up poses and keep the kids entertained.
So a dance party in the living room is a family tradition. Also a must do for family lifestyle photos!
Sometimes you just want to hang the kids upside down, right?!
Family group hugs are a nice way to end your shoot.
