Summer Family at Home Photos

Family Sessions

Making the most of your family photos this summer in Seattle can sometimes mean setting your family up for success with a photoshoot at home. If you have kids that are a bit shy at first in front of the camera, consider a location that is familiar for everyone. Being in a comfortable environment can help ease nerves and bring out natural smiles.

Creating Comfortable and Natural Family Photos at Home

For this summer photoshoot, we documented the family at home. Their session included a lovely backyard with beautiful light. Starting at home gave the boys time to warm up before heading to the beach. This ensured everyone was relaxed for the more adventurous part of the shoot.

When you live this close to the beach and it feels like summer in Seattle, it’s simply a must to include these scenes in your family gallery. We got super lucky with the weather this day, so we took full advantage of the warm sun. I really loved how my client included some blue hues in their family outfits. It really brought out the summer mood and looked so beautiful against the bright blue skies at the beach. The combination of home and beach photos gave the gallery a delightful variety.

The most important tip is to relax and have fun. Your photos will reflect the mood of the day, so keep things light-hearted and enjoyable. Remember, the goal is to capture your family’s unique personality and the love you share. Genuine interactions and laughter will always make for the best photos.
