The Zacher family wanted a fun family session. We began their shoot at Fort Niagara State Park in Youngstown, NY. Here, the little boys got to run around and have some fun at the park. Then we headed into the Village of Youngstown to get a different style of image.
The outfits could not have been more perfect for this family session. Mom sure knows how to dress the family. They were very americana. It was great! This could be used for a fourth of July add for Ralph Lauren!
We loved this image from their shoot. Mom and dad both picked up one of the boys and had a casual walk down the sidewalk. We wanted them to look at each other and enjoy. At the last second we called the boys names to look toward us. The reaction was great!
There was an American Flag hanging off of one of the stores. Once we saw the families outfits, we knew we wanted the flag to be in some part of the images. This turned out so nice. Neal captured a small part of the flag in the foreground. Slightly out of focus, but you still know it's a flag. We really wanted to show some of the store fronts down the side as well. The image is also a little tilted. That was done on purpose to have a small part of the tree in the foreground as well. When we went into post and straightened out the image, we lost the whole feel of the photo. So, we reset the image and it looked so much better!
