Family sessions take place outdoors in the early morning or evening to take advantage of the most beautiful natural lighting. I adore authentic posing, I aim to capture your family’s special bond in the form of photographs. I pride myself in being able to get a feel for your individual personalities and how they fit together to create your family. Having the ability to see that bond so intimately allows me to prompt and pose your family in a way that feels genuine and natural to you. The way that I pose families is flattering for everyone in the photo. Stiff, riding poses are not what you will walk away with after a session with Julie Harding Photography. I like to begin each family session with the family together as a whole, I do this shot early because little ones tend to be a little more cooperative early on in the session.
Through out the session I like to allow the kids to interact and play together, candid sibling shots melt my heart every time and always end up being the parents favorites. Being a mother myself, I know to bring a little sweet treat for the kiddos to help get their attention and keep the fun going. Something unique that I like to do during a family session is to take a moment aside with mom and dad. You two are where this family started and you deserve to have a few images that remind you how much you love each other and how strong of a team you are! One of the things I am most proud of in my work is being told by a dad after a family session that they truly enjoyed the experience and cannot wait to see the final product! Fun, candid, and authentic images are what I strive to create for your family! Please head over to my contact page to get more details about your family session!
