Being a Family Photographer Des Moines, brings so many wonderful moments for me. It is always a joy when I get to do a family session for a past wedding client. It is wonderful watching families grow. I photographed Brita & Travis wedding back in 2019. Now they have a wonderful new addition to their family with their new baby. We photographed their family session at the Saylorville Beach area. Not only is it one of my favorite places to photograph, but I love bringing my own family to play here on the weekends too. Moreover, even though it was April we had good weather for this day! It was slightly windy but I love the movement that wind can create in an image.
As a Family Photographer Des Moines, It is always good to track where the lighting is going to go and hit each area you plan to use. I know I like to play with harsh lighting at times so a lack of cloud cover is not going to bother me. The beach is fantastic but there isn’t any tree coverage. Thus bearing that in mind if you need to plan a good lighting time to shoot. I try to get parings of each parent with each kid. Then also take some photos of the whole family spending time together. In addition it is also important to me to capture photos of just the parents. Usually we always focus so much on the kids that it is also to take a moment to focus some images on parents too.
