April Family of the Month - Kirkland Lifestyle Family Session
Trying a new style lifestyle session for my April family of the month and it was such great fun. I love the beauty and power of the PNW but sometimes the weather just doesn't cooperate! I'm looking forward to adding more lifestyle sessions alongside my outdoor nature sessions, in the coming months.
What's your favorite family activity?
Our family enjoys being outdoors together, skiing or hiking when the weather permits. We also like to travel.
Tell me about your favorite parts of our session, or why you enjoyed the session.
I enjoyed the session because it was fun! Until my 2yo decided he was done, we ended up giving him a sucker half way through the session which seemed to work. Monique is patient and great with kids and still seemed to get some amazing shots from a cranky toddler!
Tell me about the outfits you wore to the shoot (where you bought them, why you chose them, etc
I wanted something light and comfortable for myself so I went with a light purple jumper I found at Urban Outfitters. I bought Asher’s sweater and pants from H&M, and his button up is from Zara. I wanted to buy outfits I know we will wear again.
What are some words of wisdom you have for other families preparing for a family session?
I’d say don’t stress about it being perfect or having perfectly behaved children, just let Monique work her magic!
