Recently, I made family portraits for a family whose home is across the street from an awesome playground. What better location for family photos! The kids are already familiar with the place, have a blast there, and there is plenty of room for us to play, laugh, and get great shots. I love when families can be themselves, so outdoor locations are always my preference for family portraits. And when the kids can play, run, jump, and get wet in the water fountain – even better.
