How a busy mom found time to get GREAT family photos!

Mom needed a new headshot by Monday morning. But there's no way she had time to corral the kids and bring them to a photography studio. No problem. My studio travels!

Mom got her headshot standing in her living room. I didn't have to coax this smile out. There are some little people standing behind the backdrop doing some serious clowning!

Saw an opportunity to put some sunlight in this gorgeous lady's hair and I took it!

This post is an example of family photojournalism, which is a contemporary spin on the traditional family portrait. There's no need to dress everyone the same and make a grand, complicated production out of taking family photos. Those kinds of photos don't even reflect what your family really looks like. Family photojournalism is about capturing the awesome images that occur during the course of everyday family life.

Mom didn't even need to change her schedule to do this. She got her headshot for work AND a ton of great family photos in just under an hour without having to adjust one minute of her schedule. I can do this for you, as well. Contact me now so we can talk about how I can help you with your photography needs in a way that fits right into your busy schedule.

And speaking of schedules, school is about to start. So if you want to get some family photos in the last carefree days of summer or before someone goes off to college, now is the time.
