Family photos do not have to be boring, awkward, posed and stiff occasions! This family was adamant about their photos being natural and candid since older kids typically don't like to smile and pose for the camera. It makes sense completely and it's actually my preference to not do as much posing and let families be themselves in front of the camera. This family brought their dog along, which is a great way to help you relax and be yourself if you feel uncomfortable in front of the camera. Interacting with your kids and animals is a sure way to forget the camera is in front of you and to just be yourself. I love South Congress Ave in downtown Austin for family photos because there are so many great and quirky spots to photograph families who are looking for a more artsy photo session. The heart wall is such a well-known mural in Austin and you can't go wrong getting a few fun photos in front of this Austin landmark!
