Kiss Interrupted / Lakeland Family Photographer

3 Nov

Sometimes the perfect shot can be interrupted.  While photographing a family, I always take pictures of just the husband and wife. Too often, parents can forget that they were a married couple first when the demands of diapers and school lines take over their day to day lives. During my photo shoots, we take a brief moment among the pictures of the family and the kids, to take a picture of the people who started the family: the husband and wife! Sometimes this shift of focus takes the kids by surprise and funny things can happen.

While doing my Holiday Mini-Shoots at Circle B Bar Reserve, the last family I was photographing had one of those unexpected moments. Here are a couple of the beautiful shot we captured of the husband and wife as the kids “helped” me make their parents smile.

They turned out so well! I was excited about how well the girls were doing and the wonderful shots I knew I had captured for my client. And then I suggested the parents kiss and chaos began. The oldest child yelled, “NOOOOOOOO!!!” and ran straight for her parents, interrupting any further photos I planned on taking. It was hilarious! Then both of the girls started trying to attach me and the camera to stop any further picture taking of their parents kissing. I was laughing so hard!!! This is what I captured and thought you all would get a kick out of it. I just love my job!

    LOVE the story! Jesse seems oblivious to us kissing. Kudos for Sabes sitting on the ground, too!

    The last photo cracks me up so hard! I can hear her saying, “don’t take a picture of my mommy and daddy kissing,” and truly believing she can block you from seeing us, just by raising her arms!

    Thanks for a wonderful experience and beautiful pictures!
