M Family Session - Jane Whitaker Photography

M Family Session

12.17.14 – This kind family was too much fun to photograph!

The session started like any other, getting all the organized shots I planned on. As the hour progressed, though, we pulled out some fun props to shoot some ideas the mom wanted to try for Christmas cards. 

First, we had the kids snuggle together with adorable mugs of marshmallow-filled "hot chocolate."

Then, we tried to capture the whole family blowing snow-like glitter at the camera.

I have tried to do glitter shots a few times previous to this shoot, and I am pretty sure those super cute photos you see on Pinterest result of blowing glitter repeatedly, like 100 times, not just once.

Anyway, I was aware it would require some extra time, but not so aware how much fun it would become! We were all laughing and covered in glitter by the end of it. I wish there had been a video made of the whole process.

One word of advice: don't wear lip stick/gloss when blowing glitter, unless you want a really good laugh.
