Double digits

My comfort zone in photography is generally young children, babies and families. So when this family contacted me to take pictures of their four pre-teen and teenage children and BOYS at that I was a little bit nervous. Shoot, I’m even nervous thinking about my three becoming teenagers, just thinking about it makes me shake a little. But I was pleasantly surprised to find these boys to be so nice and polite. In fact, I would even go as far as to say it’s easier than young kids! And their home was beautiful, even equipped with a Phoenix Suns themed basketball court and beautiful light in the backyard. I love it when families pick their homes to do their photoshoots. It’s so much more personable, MUCH more unique, and a lot more comfortable. Your house doesn’t need to be picture perfect. With the lenses I use and the way I shoot, we can work all around the house. Anyway, here are just a few from our session together.

Vicki Wow! What a great looking group of young men! I was nervous about my kids becoming teenagers when they were little too. Then by the time they became teenagers I was ready for it!!

Jill Velicer Photography This was an awesome job Joanna! No need for you to shake!!!

Jenn Nice job! They came out great! And I’m scared of teenagers, too :)

Dennis Bullock Awesome Joanna!

Paula Wike What an adorable family! And you did a wonderful job with the photoshoot!

Jessica These are AWESOME!!! Amazing job, Joanna!!! LOVE that bw family shot!!

Julia I love these!!! You did amazing, it is so good to step outside of your comfort zone and give yourself a challenge sometimes.

Suzzane Brown I totally agree that it’s way more fun to do sessions at home (and it’s a total bonus when the home is as naturally well lit and beautiful as this one!). Clearly your subjects are very at ease with you and I would have never known that you don’t typically photograph families with older children. Great job Joanna!
