North Shore Family Photography :: The P Family

North Shore Family Photography :: The P Family

I met up with this North Shore family for their family portrait photography session. I absolutely love this family! One of the greatest things about my job is getting to know families and kiddos. And this family is one I’ve known for a couple of years now. I’ve been photographing them since their third son was a newborn! I love getting the chance to catch up with the whole family. And, of course, I get to watch as these littles grow into big kids, which is so, so much fun for me.

Watching them grow as individuals, and also seeing how their relationships with each other develop is so special. Sibling shots are so great to have, especially ones that truly showcase the relationship between the brothers. Each of the little guys have their own distinct personality, and I think they really shine through in so many of these photographs. This is just another fun and rewarding aspect of my job!

Styling Choices For This North Shore Family Photo Session

When it comes to family photos, some parents want everyone to match perfectly, some want outfits to coordinate, and some don’t have any preference at all. There are pros and cons to each of these choices. For this session, there was a great amount of coordination, and in some of the later photos matching sweatshirts. The styling for this session is a great example of how to use a pop of color to coordinate. Both mom and dad are wearing neutral colors while the three boys are all wearing red. The red pops against both the neutral colors on mom and dad, and also the nature backdrop around them. And red is such a great color for photos in fall and winter. I don’t think that we need to keep certain colors for certain seasons, but there are definitely benefits to keeping the season in mind when choosing outfits and color schemes.

For classic and timeless children clothing I love Gap and Boden. Check out this post for more family portrait styling help: An Online Family Portrait Styling Tool.

Choosing Prints and Products

After your North Shore family photography session it’s time to choose your prints and products. Whether you’re looking for gift ideas or for products for your home, there are truly options for everyone. And there are no wrong choices, either. I offer in studio or virtual viewing and ordering sessions to walk you through all of your photos as well as all your options. My goal is to make the entire process easy and stress-free for you. You can read more about the print and product options here: What To Do With Your Photos.

When it comes to wall art, I’m able to show you exactly how your photos will look on your wall. If you’re looking for a single portrait to hang on your wall, or looking to create a wall gallery. Either way I’m here to help. You just send me a photo of your wall, with a piece of printer paper taped to it so I can get a good idea of the dimensions. And then I digitally add your photos as framed wall art, or gallery wrapped canvases. This way you’re able to get a good idea of how your products will look in your decor. You’ll also know that the size you’re getting is the perfect size for your space.
