Picture Time Portrait Sessions

We Are Family…

This week is going to be all about editing photos for Fresh Photography, so hang on – it is going to be a busy time around here! (I’ll probably be cross-posting from the Fresh Photography blog several times, since it will be my main focus all week!)

First up, the Mother’s Day weekend session! The Alleys have been married for 50 years, and since everyone was gathering to celebrate, we set up a big family portrait session for that Saturday afternoon. We met in Hermann Park at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and found a nice quiet spot to set up. We captured all sorts of family combinations while we were there – just the parents, the parents with the grandchildren, the parents with the children, the children & their families, the grandchildren together, just the older granddaughters – you name it, we did it! When Donna contacted me to find out if it would be a session fee for each family, I told her no because that just wouldn’t make sense. A session fee is for 1-2 hours of my time, and since it was all one big family, why not make the most of it? I don’t see any reason to limit a session based on the number of people involved!

Here are a few favorites of mine from the day – the parents and the children, and one of the big group shots with all 20 people in it – and no one is blinking!
