As a mom, family photos can be terrible rather than exciting, then i spend hundreds of dollars to have the photos taken, spend hours picking & buying matching outfits, & I have to keep the whole family blissful while I was in the entire photoshoot, and all of this exhaustion just for a few nice family photos is hardly worth it.
I don’t want to look back & regret not capturing moments of our family together though, so I do it anyway; Last week, every one of us had a family photoshoot tied up while I was in 1 of the hottest afternoons of the year; The weather channels were talking about a large heat wave wiping through the area & there was nothing I could do however embrace it.
I picked outfits that were cool & comfortable for everyone & prayed for the best, but our photographer recommended every one of us shoot the photos in a different location & I happily obliged. I assumed our current location would still be outside, however I was pleasantly surprised when the address she gave us took us to a studio building. Instead of shooting outside, every one of us got to shoot inside with the cool A/C! The photographer had us sit in front of a white paper backdrop & there was a ductless mini break method above it! During the entire shoot, the cool A/C was blowing onto everyone & it felt amazing. All of us were able to avoid the harsh temperatures outside & stay cool while I was in the whole shoot, but everyone was blissful & comfortable & I recognize we’re going to do all family photos this way in the future.
