I know getting family photos can be a lot trying to put everything together, but it is so worth it! This is my family! I shopped for outfits, made hair appointments, found a reward to encourage children to behave (Neapolitan milk shakes from In-N-Out). The adults needed ice cream after the session too! On top of doing all the mom stuff to get ready, I also took them!

I set up a tripod and camera set with a 10 second timer. 

 My steps were:

1. Find light 

2. Find background 

3. Set everyone up 

4. Focus, click, run

5. Repeat step 4

Luckily my daughter could click the shutter for me when I took portraits with my husband.  And my husband took detailed instruction from me as he had to bend down to try to see the world from my vantage point.  A lot of trial and error, but so worth it!
