Capturing Family Photos in a Natural and Outdoor Setting

When was the last time that you and your family had a formal photo session? Do you have formal pictures that you want to look back on, smile, and remember all of the great things that happened throughout the years? Formal outdoor photography is something so many families are missing. Taking them at a natural and outdoor location that means something to you all can help you connect later in life, take a look at a picture and be happy that you were there. When you decide to go forward with this type of outdoor family photography session, make sure you are working with a photographer that can deliver on your needs.

Richard Willett at Penrith Photography brings a unique level of experience and exposure to the table in the space of formal photography. We take price in holding certifications, diplomas, and so on as we take the very best family portraits across all of the New South Wales area and beyond. The goal with your outdoor family photography session should be satisfaction in the result.

Family Portraits Should Be Natural

The thing to remember most when talking about family portraits is that they should be natural. The goal is to get your family in a setting where they can let their guard down, allow themselves to be exposed a bit. This is where a great photographer comes into play. As a parent, you get to sit back relax and allow your photographer to do their thing. You do not want to have family portraits that seem forced. When you get into this type of setting you are just not going to enjoy yourself at all. Some parents become anxious that their little one is not smiling or doing the wrong thing. This frustration usually does not help however as the likely hood is that when your child is ready the photography will show mum and or dad desperately looking at their children. My best advice is for mum and dad to relax and have fun. Enjoy the moment of being together as a family. Enjoy the beautiful day and cherish your partner and children. 

Life is short, so savour every moment you have with your family. 

Many years from now you will look back and realise what an amazing privilege it has been to be alive. 

Guess what! You won't be at all concerned about that money you spent on great photography as you will be getting something of far more value in return. 

You want your family to be there, to be in the moment, and enjoying the company of one another. Ever been to a family portrait session that was just not enjoyable? You always remember the bad sessions, but the good ones are a lot more fun to look back on in the end.

When was the last time you have a photograph of your family taken and printed?

It's truly special when you walk into a room in your house and look at one of your family moments set in a frame on a wall in your house.
