I had the privilege of capturing this beautiful family’s annual photo session at the Delray Oaks Natural Area.
We have managed to capture amazing and adventurous sessions at some of South Florida’s most beautiful locations for the past seven years; for instance, Delray’s Japanese Gardens, Miami’s Wynwood with a broken leg, the Boca Resort & beach, Jupiter’s Historic Riverbend Park and Jupiter’s Lighthouse to name a few! Many of these locations now require a photography permit to photograph there. Every single year brought on a new look, a new location and another marveolus experience.
How To a Achieve a Successful & Adventurous Session:
Be spontaneous, adventurous and willing to travel
Contact your photographer many months in advance so you can schedule the session & have ample time to formulate a plan (location, wardrobe, ideas, etc.)
Schedule a regular 60-90 minute session because time is needed to cover ground
Communicate your ideas and vision in advance
Arrive at your session ready for an adventure but at the same time ready to capture natural & precious moments … you have to be yourself!
Be willing to take direction and trust the process, when you relax and give up control on what you think your kids should be doing at a photo session … only then can you relax and enjoy yourself and let the photographer do her job :-)
For the session below, I captured this family at a completely new to me location! We explored our surroundings on the nature walk and randomly stopped to capture photos, look at plants, examine berries, and the entire family even climbed a tree (in heels) to capture the adventure. Check it out below :-)
