I have a lot of “divorcees” ask me how to do the family photos if you’ve gone through a divorce.
This is totally normal and totally something you can do because the most important thing is that you are still a family after all -so of course we can do this!
The session runs about the same as before, except we make more photos of each parent with the kids solo, which we do anyway -to showcase the different personalities and dynamics of all of your relationships.
SO YES YES YES- If your a mom or dad and you booked the shoot, and you want dad/mom to join for the whole shoot or just pop in for a few photos at the beginning or the end, the answer is yes!!! You can absolutely do this. There are no rules to this.
This family is still a full on bad ass unit, but mom and dad are just not together anymore (in that way) however, they will still be forever connected for their girls. I like to think of a family photo shoot as kind of like a mood board, if you think about it. I’m not here to pretend I know everyone’s relationship and I know this is not always an easy situation. But I am just here to tell you this families story and how they deal with the twice yearly family photo sessions. They are truly special humans, and I am so grateful to be their family photographer, no matter what the state of the family is. I love to tell your story.
Like a boss.
