The Schmidt Family’s Fun & Fast Sioux Falls Session

I love taking photos of families with adult children. Hardly anyone does it though, because we forget to keep chronicling our families’ lives once our kids grow up. I think it’s very important to get photos done regularly of your family, once a year at least…though I might have a bit of a vested interest in this… 🙂

Anyway, one of the reasons I love sessions with families with grown children is that they are FAST. Since most everyone can smile on cue, keep their attention locked on my camera for a few seconds at a time, and sit still, we can easily get great photos in under an hour. We knocked this session out in 30 minutes and got lots of great shots!

I may have encouraged them to pick on one another a little bit! Gotta love sibling rivalries 🙂

I was especially glad that these guys were so easy to work with and cooperative because as we were starting to wrap up, the heat and humidity skyrocketed and the bugs started getting ravenous. Well, that might be a slight exaggeration, but mosquitoes flock to me like tweens to a One Direction concert.

Anyway, we said our farewells just before getting eaten alive and I was done with enough time to grab an iced chai on the way home. Ahh. Adult family sessions rock!

Thanks Schmidt family for letting me document this season of your lives!
