Have you thought about planning a family photo session with your young adult children?
I wholeheartedly encourage you: do it!
Just because they aren’t little anymore doesn’t mean you should forego a family photo session. First of all: it’s WAY easier. Your young adults can pick out their own outfits, dress themselves, don’t need to be bribed, and (usually) behave better.
Plus, chances are good that your family composition will start changing soon. While significant others and future grandchildren (and grandpets) will beautifully grow your family, you should celebrate this stage of life, too!
Posing the Family Photo Session with Young Adult Children
Worried posing might feel awkward because your kids can’t fit in your lap or be picked up anymore?
Not need to worry! My posing system will help make everyone comfortable and confident in front of the camera.
The Friesen family had:
The “I don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera” person
The “Sure, whatever you say!” person
The “I love the spotlight!” person
The “I’m just here because I was told to be here” person
Enthusiasm ranged across the full spectrum from unexcited to “Let’s do this!”
I bet you can’t tell who was uncomfortable and unenthused because, by the end of this session, everyone was comfortable and having a great time! The Friesen family trusted me enough to follow all my posing prompts and ideas and ended up thoroughly enjoying their photo session. That’s right: they enjoyed the photo session itself! They did not begrudgingly participate in order to get a nice photo to hang on the wall. They genuinely enjoyed and had a fun time together…and received several beautiful images to choose from for the wall.
Of course, Charlie needed a portrait, too!!
Honestly, I work really hard to make every family photo session with young adult children (and with young children) a great experience for every person. I want everyone to enjoy their time and to create a family memory together.
I just happen to be there with a camera to capture it all!
