When I'm with the Moore family, I'm guaranteed to have a good time. :) Mostly because they have three boys and that is pretty much a recipe for craziness. :) During this shoot, they were running around like crazy people, and I said to Jen, "I wish I had half the energy they have!" And she said to me, "I wish they had half the energy they have!" hehe :) Yes, kids have tons of energy!
And photographing families is FUN! I love it! This portrait was nothing short of fun. We had such a great time. We went to Tempe Beach Park and played around a bit. I had only been to this park once before and I think it's an excellent location for pictures!!! When they suggested it I was totally up for it. :)
All of their kids have very different personalities - it's fun to see in the pictures! Enjoy them!
So in the beginning of a portrait, I will typically pose people just to warm up to the camera and then they'll get comfortable and have fun and I'll get candid shots. Well, I didn't even pose this next one. I told Jen and Rob to sit down and the two kids on the right plopped down and the other on the left. I was almost speechless that they sat themselves down that way!! So this next shot, while it is nice, I typically don't do really 'posey' (posed + cheesey) shots. :) I do like how this one did turn out though! :) Great thinking kiddo's!
Yay for jumping shots! :)
So I was trying to get the kids to lighten up a bit and told them to jump off of this ledge. I think they took this jumping seriously...so, look at the child (Noah) in the middle...he's SO intense!!! haha! :)
Had a great time Moore family! :)
