Backyard family photos is my go-to recommendation right now to capture your family during these times. Of course, it has also been a favorite for years, for many reasons. Read on below to find out why.
Why backyard family photos?
Your family is relaxed during backyard family photos.
This is by far the number one reason your backyard is the perfect location for family photography. When you are at home, you tend to be more relaxed and in your comfort zone. When you’re relaxed, those natural smiles are easier to come by. Plus, capturing those candid moments that really make an album tell your family story is a plus. As much as I enjoy giving instructions and directions to help with “posing”, sitting back and letting moments happen naturally is the best.
The focus is on family connections, not the location.
You should never stress about a location in general. The point of family photography is to document those close family connections. The cuddles, the kisses, the nuzzles, that is what makes an image so impactful. And what usually brings a smile to your face when you see the results.
You know what they say about Texas weather? Don’t like it, wait a few minutes and it will change. Yes, the summer is HOT, but you never know when a rain shower is going to just pop up. Lightening is not something you ever want to be outside in, but rain, snow and even a light wind is something we can work with.
Landscape or architectural features.
Taking advantage of the landscape or any special features of your backyard just makes an image that much more meaningful. For example, you can use a rock for sitting on, a tree for sitting under, or flowers for framing an image.
