Holiday Family Photos | Jeffrey Trail, Irvine, Ca.

It’s one thing to have a beautiful family to photograph year in and year out, but it’s a whole different having to realize that each time you see them means that another year has passed us by. But hey, let’s not start off on a sad note! The Pfeiffer family came to Jeffrey Trail looking their best as always. Natasha and Jason did not change one bit, but the boys sure did grow a lot taller! A few hundred clicks later the holiday photo session was all wrapped up. We said our goodbyes and on the way home I couldn’t help but wonder if the next 12 months would fly by as fast as the last 12 did. I guess we will soon find out.

Tips For a Fun Family Photoshoot:

First and foremost you have to choose the right photographer. Your style and his/her style have to mesh. If you are hiring someone for their fun, editorial, untraditional approach, then you have to expect to get “down and dirty” during your photo session. Do not overcomplicate the photoshoot! Let your natural behavior shine through. After all, the photographer is there to capture you and YOUR family, not some other family you might be trying to portray! In other words, let your personalities shine. Be as free as your conscience allows. Just remember that a family photoshoot is supposed to be a a little snippet of who you guys are as a family, the photographer is simply there to capture that.

Technical Information:

This session was photographed on a Canon RF28-70mm F2 L USM Lens and a Canon EOS-R body. All photos were edited individually in Adobe Lightroom Classic. No presets were used and some retouching was done.
