I met this adorable family recently for Rishik’s ONE session. Unfortunately on the day of the ONE session is was rather rainy and gross outside but we elected to do his cake and bath session anyway in the studio and we waited a few days to do his family session.
With all my ONE sessions, I do offer some family pictures. It is something that I offer with all my baby and child sessions. In fact, some people contact me for a baby or child session most often with the mind set of just having the child photographed. Well, it is ten times more important for me to have the family pictures as opposed to the cake and bath portion. The interaction of the child and the parents is one that is more important than any other image I take at a session – so I do offer this to my clients.
On days when it is nice and we are able to do the outdoor and studio combination, there is a fantastic historic park that is located 10 minutes from my house (aka the studio) and it works perfect as a combination outdoor session and studio session. Since we had to reschedule the outdoor portion for this session, we were actually able to branch out a little bit and go to a different park. We selected Lake Crabtree Park in the RTP area and it was perfect.
There was a little bit of a fog on the lake and into the park but it worked great and I love the woods and paths in this park.
I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from this great extended family session! AND Rishick’s grandparents happened to be in town for a visit from India so we were able to incorporate them into the session as well!
