What to Expect From a Fall Family Session in Fresno

It’s time to talk fall family photography session experience! I know it might feel like fall but my family on the East Coast says leaves are already changing for fall, so whether or not California finally decides to get on board and start cooling down, fall is nearly here! With it, comes the rush of fall family photos, which is the busiest time of the year for my photography business. It’s also one of my favorite times of the year because I get to work with returning clients whom I saw for family photos the previous year and I get to meet new families as well!

All in all, it’s a great experience to capture so many special moments. Whether you’re a fall session regular or this is your very first time, here is what you can expect from a fall family photography session experience with Madison Thomson Photography.

Have fun!

Yes, some of you (or maybe some of your family members) feel like fun and family photos can never coexist. I would like to prove you wrong. The mother of one family I worked with said, “Maddie was amazing with our kids, getting them to laugh and making it a fun experience for them.”

My style of photography is authentic and fun. I want to capture genuine reactions and most of that comes from being silly, telling jokes, and snuggling in really close. I use a lot of kid-friendly prompts that are comfortable and straightforward, which helps everyone relax and just be themselves.

Be prepared!

I want you to feel 100% prepared for your session with me. She wrote, “She helped us out leading up to the photo shoot and was very patient with us.” Need clothing ideas? I have you covered. Need clothes? Check out my client closet! Let’s figure out the best location for your family, what your goals are for your session, and how we can meet them. When you show up for your session, you should feel prepared and ready. No surprises here! Here are my tips for checking out my client closet for a maternity session!

Feel rewarded!

“We absolutely love how our pictures turned out! We would definitely recommend her to everyone!” Getting your gallery back should make all the worry you might have felt worth it. With the new shop feature in your gallery, you can purchase your prints, photo books, wall art, etc. right then and there! Everything is in one place and you can know that the quality of your printed photos will last a lifetime.
