I am feeling an entire Impressions Photography marketing campaign could be focused on this image. I've met so many grooms that I am sure can relate to this poor girl. I know pictures aren't always fun for everyone, but I definitely try to make the experience as fun and easy as possible. If it's a wedding party that is more interested in getting to cocktail hour or a baby that is fighting nap time, I definitely know that pictures can be a drag for some, so keeping things moving along and making the experience entertaining is so important.
Luckily for us this was the last picture of the evening at this Casa Ybel family portrait. We were able to get some stunning Sanibel sunset pictures and great candid moments of the entire family on the beach before the inevitable happened. Most of my family portraits last between 45 minutes and an hour and with small children that time frame is usually just perfect. We always begin with more posed pictures and then transition to relaxed and casual candid style beach pictures. Sometimes that even includes a few tears! It was the ending to a fabulous Sanibel photo shoot... and with so many wonderful moments leading up to it, I think that is the perfect ending!
