A couple of months ago we had a summer family photography session in Des Moines’ Greenwood Park. The kids made us laugh non-stop throughout the day – definitely a family of comedians.
The family photo session started with a casual walk through Greenwood Park, we photographed as they talked and laughed together.
Stopping by the park pond, we were able to get some great candid photographs of the kids as they played.
Having two photographers at a session for families with several kids is great because we can split up and give kids more individual attention.
Working our way to the east side of the pond gave us a great location for a group photo of the kids together – we found this large rock that fit the three kids perfectly with the trees and calm pond in the background.
Nearby, we also found a nice patch of grass for a simple, casual family photograph.
We eventually made our way back to the “Three Cairns“, a large sculpture by British artist Andy Goldsworthy. We have photographed here before and like the location, but wanted a bit of a different look, so the three kids each took a hollowed out “egg” and stood inside.
