Kimberly brought the family in for a family portrait. Like most everything, I now shoot it on green screen. We didn’t discuss much about the background, so I picked a scene from a recent trip to Colorado that I thought would be appropriate from our conversation during the session. Kimberly looked at the result, and said, “Wow, I love it. I want it. But I was hoping for a Christmas theme.” No problem! Find a Christmas image, drop it in PhotoKey and voila’ – instant Christmas photograph.
I had the privilege of photographing Debbie’s wedding several years ago. She has kids now and brought them in for a Christmas session. Children are always a challenge, but when you put two together, it compounds the challenge. You just have to work with them and let them have some fun. It is very much, “go with the flow.” My concept when I talked to her on the phone was to do something with them reading a book. After we jumped them up and down several times, they settled down enough to look at Christmas book together.
