Cooper Family | Kalamazoo MI Photographer

As a Kalamazoo MI Photographer, my sessions are all about the fun and candid moments to capture. Just like with the Cooper Families session. This family is just as sweet as can be. They were one of my first Family Session bookings for Fall after the stay at home order chaos in Michigan came to an end. They chose the beginning of October for their session. October has a lot of unknown to it. It could be a lingering summer weather or a cool fall feel.

The Setting

The colors are just starting to change and its a beautiful time of year! It ended up being a cloudy day for our session and a temperature right in the middle. The Cooper Family wanted a location that provided a woodsy feel with color. Al Sabo Preserve was a perfect location for this type of backdrop. It provides a mix of tall pines and open meadows and it looks great at any time of year.

Getting to hang out with The Cooper Family for their session was fun. The kids ran around and we played a few games to incorporate into their session. This made for some good family pictures and candid moments! I really love to get involved with the kids in the session. After all – they typically run the show and set the mood for the how the session will go. So my job is to have fun with them, and keep them happy which makes for some happy parents!

Mom was a little worried before the session that the kids may be hard to wrangle in for the session to get those family pictures but I had no worries. I have so much experience working with kids and I am a Mom myself, so I know how to handle all personalities! We started off at the Tall Pines and let the kids run through the trees, run to and around Mom and Dad and just be kids. My approach with sessions are carefree, fun, and laid back. I never want to force anything in the session and love guiding my families into their own comfortable space through fun prompts. Here are some of the sweet images we were able to capture.
