Family of Six - Styling, Shooting and Reflection Video
Not all sessions work out the way we want them to, but how can we work around four crying children and STILL get emotive images for the family. Follow me from BEGINNING to END!
I breakdown how I styled this family with my use of Pinterest boards, Woodstock inspiration and the love of mixing textures, patterns and accessories.
THEN you will see the entire look come together as we shoot them for almost an hour. The wind started to blow making the babies cold, so we had to work together to create an atmosphere for them to still be ok having their pictures being taken. These parents were total troopers and I am very appreciative of them!
Lastly, at the end you will watch me reflect on the session and read a letter the mom wrote to me. How she was nervous about even looking at the images because of crying babies, but when looking at them, connected that much more with her HUSBAND. It’s beautiful.
Behind the Scenes
Video + Editing
Follow over my shoulder with this family of three photo session.. with a toddler that had her own agenda and how to still create emotive work with subtle movements, choice of placement with the sun, guiding the “what do I do with my hands” saga and so much more.
In the email I will discuss what tools I use for editing (even if you only purchase the BTS video and not the editing video ) why 99% of connecting with your client comes BEFORE the arrival to a shoot and also, choosing wardrobe that may be out of your clients “norm.”
This editing video shows all my befores with camera settings and how Tricia Victoria Gold Presets are pretty amazing with one click, if you are wanting that gold tone! I will drag images into Photoshop for the skin smoothing portion and simple tweaks to the image that make a world of difference.
You can purchase just the BTS video for $75 (on sale now for $45) or combine with the screen sharing editing video of the session for $95 (sale now for $55).
Behind the Scenes Video - Nostalgic Family Fun
This is a behind the scenes video of a family of four – I have included simple props to bring excitement to the session. Mom is also dressed real casual (jeans and sweater) so that you can see how I used this to create something different!
When you purchase the video, I will include the entire gallery of images this family received so that you can see what was captured!
I used a mix of editing, between Kayla Locke’s presets and G Presets in the final editing stages.
