W & L Family Golf Documentary Session – June 26, 2017 | Drayton Valley Family Photographer
These families and I have spent many a photo session together. I’m not sure on an exact number; let’s just say we go way back. However, this was their first time testing the documentary session waters. They knew what they wanted documented right away though, and I wasn’t surprised with their request. When I think of what they do as a family my mind goes straight to spending time outdoors and specifically to golf. We ended up with a beauty of a summer day for our session, and the afternoon was spent golfing and playing around in the sunshine.
There were so many fantastic candid moments during this session; we captured some great “real” smiles. Shifting from mostly posed photography to mostly documentary photography can be tricky, so I was really hoping these families would be happy with their photos. I realized I didn’t need to worry when I saw one mom from this session comment that “all of the photos turned out perfect! I don’t want to go back to ‘posed’ photos again.” Not gonna lie, that gave me some pretty warm fuzzies. I’d love to help you plan your own perfect session; contact me today if you think this is something that works for you.
