Let's take photos in your comfort zone.
And with your "people." I'm not only talking about your family, but also your furry friends. I want to meet you pups, your cows, horses, goats, chickens, etc. Let's create a fun family session in your backyard. It doesn't get much easier than me coming to you. Plus, this is where you spend a good chunk of time, so why not document these special years growing your littles.
Each of our yards are unique.
No two yards are identical. We all have our own personal flare, right? Want a unique location, let's go with your backyard. No, you don't have to have anything fancy. Just your people and some space to play.
Small backyard? Then create a focus for photos.
So, what do I mean by this exactly? Well if you look through the photos in this blog post, I don't think you will even notice or be able to tell that this family had a relatively small yard. They had a very fun yard for their girls, but I would not say it was perfect, but guess what? You don't need a perfect yard to capture perfect photos of your family. What made these photos adorable are the girls, their pups and this sweet, little playhouse. We were intentional about what was going to be captured in the fun backyard photo session. Having this focus is what created beautiful photos. Not having the perfect yard.
Large backyard? Then let's take advantage of the space.
Maybe you have a large backyard to work with. Lots of properties in the Ellensburg, WA area tend to be this way and I say we find fun ways to photograph your family in it. I have poses with lots of movement that work well with space. We could also pull out some yard games and photograph the fun in that!
Some of my favorite photo spots at family's homes are...
I love porches, patios, rolling in the grass, trampolines, playhouse... Where is your favorite spot at your home? Do you have a special secluded and intimate fire pit area? Maybe you have a little grove of trees or small fruit tree orchard. If you like being in your yard, I know you have a special space and I want to help you create a capture memory there.
