The truth is that there is no easy answer and it’s very child dependent. As in parenthood, there are stages. It’s really hard when they are new walkers and too young to understand bribes and rewards (it’s the truth!) and it’s hard when they are three year old boys (or girls) who want to do the exact opposite of everything you say. Then, it’s really hard when they are pre-teens and teens and perfect that moody stare and become self-conscious! The awesome thing about hiring a professional family photographer is that they work with babies-kids-teens of all ages and can adapt a session to fit that family and that child at any stage. My family sessions with toddlers are casual, mostly documentary, and full of family “games” while my sessions with pre-teens are a little more posed and calm. My main goal is always to capture your family in the stage its in. Sometimes that stage is beautiful chaos and sometimes its a lovely calm.
This Autumn family session in Sudbury was in the thick of that beautiful chaos with a not-quite-two year old active little girl who wanted nothing more than to run, run, RUN! So, we ran, we tickled, we played. And we created some beautiful family photographs together on one of the very hottest September weekends. Seriously, I think it was close to 85 that evening and dripping with humidity. Mom and Dad were troopers!

"To say that I love each one would be cliche and a total understatement, but seriously... She nailed it. Being a photographer myself, I am very picky and searched dozens of photographers before coming back to lyndsay and booking her and I am so glad I did. I can't even remember the last time I hired a photographer and was this in love with the images and unable to pick just a few favorites. Thank you, lyndsay, for making the photo session easy (with 3 kids), fun and providing this mama memories for a lifetime.”
"Our images are so special and really captured our joy and the sweet personality of our little girl. Lyndsay did a great job going beyond the typical posed shots and making our photos feel authentic. We will treasure them forever."

"We have done multiple sessions (family and newborn) and we’re so happy with the results. Lyndsay makes you feel comfortable and is able to truly capture the moment. We will have her prints hung in our house for years to come."
