There are so many aspects families have to consider when they do a family photo session. The clothing...the location...the weather...getting the kiddos to be happy at that exact hour...did I mention the clothing? And...to be honest...this major duty often falls on the mama. Moms hire me for 95% of the sessions I photograph. Jackie was no exception and I admired how prepared and, in many ways, relaxed she was for our session. We started at the studio to recreate a classic, adorable studio photo another photographer had captured for her first child. Her son nailed it and we were on our way to the Presidio Spire to do the rest of the session! She had plenty of outfits to choose from and - thank goodness - because her eldest son took a dive in the dirt within approximately 30 seconds of starting our session! Second outfit to the rescue. Here is the studio shot we created first, followed by our photo session near the Presidio Spire.
