It's that time of year...family photos! I love when it's all said & done and I have cute photos of my fam, but the whole process can be a bit stressful. Especially on the mamas! Figuring out what everyone should wear, where to take the photos and which photographer to choose when there are so many options is not easy. Not to mention finding the time to get everyone ready and making ourselves look presentable.
So when Michelle Popp offered to collaborate with my family for our photos, I was beyond thrilled. Her photos are so gorgeous and she offers full hair and makeup for mamas AND wardrobe styling for the whole family. I was able to get my hair and makeup done first, then Adam and the boys met me at our photo location later. I felt like a princess and I was relaxed knowing the kiddos were napping and would be rested for our pictures.
Michelle did an amazing job getting candid and loving photos of my family, which was exactly what I asked for.
Michelle hand-picked a few outfit options for me and my boys based on our style and the type of photos I was going for. It was so nice being able to have a few options to choose from and not have to worry about what everyone was going to wear that day. I love what she chose for us.
I mentioned to Michelle that we had taken a lot of beach photos in the past and that I wanted a change of scenery. The location she chose for us was just dreamy – full of natural light and sunshine. The setting was perfect!
This family photo session with Michelle was fun and stress-free, which is probably hard to believe considering the fact that we have a 4 year old and almost two year old! Every mama deserves to be pampered and feel pretty. I definitely felt like a princess! Michelle also allowed us to bring our dog, Mayzie, which was really important to me. Mayzie is almost 17 years old and I really wanted her to be part of our family photos.
It was such a pleasure to work with Michelle. I am so happy with the whole experience and we love our photos. If you are in San Diego, contact Michelle Popp for more details and to begin planning your family portrait session!
