Light[posts], camera, action! – Family session

Like Monique, Sujin was kind enough to trade services for Brent’s birthday party. She mad the most amazing mini deserts and a rum cake that I can’t even find words to describe! More to come on that.

In return, I got to photograph Sujin’s beautiful family at LACMA a few weeks ago. I don’t know if I’ve ever had a session that went so quickly and yielded so many photos that I absolutely ADORE. This is because Sujin’s little girl, was the most cooperative little one I’ve ever met. Of course her husband also didn’t do so bad either!

Note to parents trying to dress your family for a photo session…
I thought this would be a good post to talk about dressing for family sessions. Other people might disagree, but I don’t think you can go wrong with what you wear for photos. To me photos should be a reflection of real life. Of who you are at that moment in time. Yes I had braces. Yes it was important to curl and get my bangs as tall as possible. Yes I thought a perm was a good idea at the time. Yes I loved to wear leggings and multiple pair of socks scrunched up. Yes my brother had a plethora of Gecko Hawaii shirts, shaved lines into his hair, and rocked the stone washed jeans. Yes my sister also thought a perm was a great idea (where do you think I got that in my head). Yes we were a ragtag looking bunch when we were little.

That being said, I also think it’s fun to coordinate outfits for family sessions. What I loved about this session was how their outfits coordinated but were not too matchy-matchy. The bright colors against the gray lamposts was awesome and I love that they dressed in orange, which to me is a fall color.
