Hula Hooping | NY Outdoor Family Photo Session

I’m finding that NY outdoor family photo sessions can be super duper fun, as long as we are all prepared ahead of time to be ready with a hefty list of activities to make the time feel as natural as possible.  What I want to avoid is my obedient families standing in their yards, looking for me to tell them where to stand.  Boring, stiff and natural.  Instead, we have a great time together and I capture them all in the act.

The truth is that one situation in which I never have to worry about fun naturally happening is when there’s a puppy involved.  Little Macy is one of many “pandemic puppies” I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  (Scroll to the end to see a behind the scenes image taken by mom of Macy as my assistant!)

Sweet yellow lab pup Macy was a wonderful assistant, and I was tickled when mom sent my some behind-the-scenes photos of her at my side.

Have I mentioned that my families are the best?
