There’s something about the later seasons of the year that makes the family pictures start to roll in. I have known the Parker family for several years now from nannying their cute kids and it was a treat to be able to photograph them for their family pictures. We went to a few different places, trying a nature and landscape feel first and then going to a spot in Draper, Utah to try a more modern and urban feel with a new building there. I tried using a variety of poses and with the four of them, it was a good way to learn what worked and didn’t work well with their photos.
I tried using a wide aperture for the individual portraits (f/2.5) and had to use a smaller aperture for the portraits of the whole family (f/5.6 – f/7.0). I learned that keeping a faster shutter speed would keep my images sharper and how important that is with these cute kids! I loved capturing their cute faces – family photography is so much fun and I loved photographing the Parkers!
