The McCreary's - Family Portrait Photographer

I love, love, love this session... for a number a reasons.  One, this is one of my closest cousins and favorite people in the world and her family.  I absolutely adore them all!  Two, um, hello!  They're all gorgeous!  Every last one of 'em!  (And I'm not biased at all!)  Three, I just had the most fun hanging out with my family, shooting their cuteness and catching those special smiles and fun moments.

Four, this session is a perfect example of what to wear for family portrait sessions!  My basic rule is to choose a color scheme of two or three colors, and dress in varying shades.  This family's outfits could easily have been much more basic, and maybe a little boring.  The boys could all be wearing a navy blue polo shirt, and mom could have worn a plain grey sweater.  That would've totally changed the entire look of their photos.  Having the mix of tones and patterns, and mom sporting an awesome necklace (and getting her makeup done) made all the difference.  They look so wonderfully put together, and their photos are that much cuter and more interesting :)



This session was photographed in downtown Orange, when I was down for a visit last fall... 

If you're interested in a family portrait session here in Sacramento, spring is here and it's the perfect time!  Stay tuned for info on upcoming mini sessions...
