WNY Fall Family Photo Session - Child Photographer Belle Idee Photography
Buffalo, NY fall foliage makes the best backdrop for family photo sessions.
On a beautiful and unusually warm mid-October WNY evening, the deep reds and oranges of the fall leaves were vibrant and perfect for a family photo session by Belle Idee Photography.
When I photograph children or families, it's really important for me to give a good mix of lovely posed images and sweet emotion-filled candid moments.
It's a mix between the fine-art of grabbing an image of little kids being sweet and smiley
And then letting their silly, playful, little personalities shine through.
.....and all I did, was ask if they knew how to dance, and then they Broke. It. Down.
And I love heart-warming images of children with their mom
"What should we wear?" Is one of the top questions I always get from families that are preparing for their photo session. My explanation may not be the most eloquent, but I say to go for the boy-band look....meaning, you don't want to be perfectly matched, but you do want to look like you belong together.
One of the best ways to do this is to follow these rules
#1 - Pick 1 or 2 Neutral Colors
#2 - Pick 1 Accent Color to tie it all together
#3 - At least one person in a print
#4 - Take advantage of the power of accessories.
So with this family (that is looking oh-so-Pinterest-worthy)
Navy & Beige/Ivory is the neutral, while using that beautiful, rich cranberry color for the accent, and I love that mom goes for the print.
(and these photos have a Pinterest button so if you love what you see, by all means, Pin to your own board so you have some inspiration when you're planning your own photo session!)
And I'll just leave the rest of these images from this fun-filled family photo session here for your viewing pleasure. From the silliest little ladies, to some sweet moments for the adults, this session was filled to the brim with breath-taking images that I'm sure this family will cherish forever.
