Outdoor Family Photos

I love shooting families outdoors, especially kids, I really think they have the best and biggest smiles then. I also find shooting on location to look much better than studio shoots. They look more natural, and it's more about capturing a memory than a stiffly posed shot.

My all time favorite place is Algonquin Park. From the playground to the stream, to the bridges, the waterfall, the old house ruins, rocks, and general openness. Plus the tower and little hobbit hole type door by the lake. It's just a magical place for photos for me. I love to capture the little moments of play with kids, not just posed portraits.

The other places to check out are

  • Your own yard!

  • My yard if you don't have one.

  • Downing Park

  • Waterfront

  • Washington Headquarters

  • Plum Point

  • Railroad crossings

  • Churches

The most important thing to keep in mind is that you want to make your subject comfortable, that's how you get the best smiles and the sweet moments.
