When most of us start thinking about planning a family photo session, you think about matching clothes and driving to a pretty park. Im curious though if you’ve ever thought about family photos in your backyard?

The best thing about backyard sessions is you don’t have to go anywhere.

I come to you! You don’t have to go to a pretty park to get amazing family photos…. your yard is and extension of the most wonderful place, your home.

You may not have everything a park does, or the most perfectly landscaped yard, or lush green grass but the benefits of keeping your family in the fun, laid-back comfort of home? Priceless.

The next best thing is that everyone chooses and outfit they are comfortable in. Imagine letting the kids play with their favorite toys while running around the backyard just being THEMSELVES! No begging or threatening for everyone to stay clean, smile and behave!

Yall can make s’mores, blow bubbles, eat ice cream, swing, play in the pool or slip-in slide, jump on a trampoline, play baseball, play with your dog, paint photos, play with toys, have a family picnic…. the ideas are endless and you don’t have to worry about finding a potty or getting anywhere on time! (You can thank me later! 😉

This is the kind of family photo session that I LOVE and specialize in!

I want everyone to have fun, to relax and to be themselves! I want your kids to wear dots on top and stripes below. I want them to run around and have fun! I want to capture their genuine smiles and personalities! I want to capture photos of your REAL LIFE filled with honest REAL LIFE moments!

Really I could go on and on about the benefits of booking family photos in your backyard, but I’ll leave you with just one more.

Our beloved pets. When you have a family session in your back yard, you get to incorporate your pup!

When you have a family photo session, it’s not just for you, it’s also for your children, and perhaps one day, their children! They will be able to look back on these photos and not only have memories of this day but memories of summertime during their magical childhoods! I’d love for you to consider a Family Photo Session in the Backyard!
