Lacy Gordon- Mom & Entrepreneur
After receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Columbia College in 2006, I have photographed people all over the world- people, weddings, events, animals, you name it. I now have 2 daughters (aged 1.5 and 4.) And one of the biggest challenges I’ve had as a photographer is photographing my own kids. Over a few years I’ve learned some tips that have helped make this a more pleasant experience (for everyone involved!) I’m very aware of how often Moms are the ones capturing the special moments rather than getting in the frame, too. I use that experience to better capture those family shoots.
Here are some tips to assure your photos are family perfection.
Lower the pressure
Don’t forget to get photos of yourself with your kids.
Go with the flow.
Be mindful of the time of day
Don’t expect it to last too long.
Plan something fun that everyone can look forward to when the shoot is over
