Jooste Family Photo Shoot
When you think of an affordable family photo shoot, what comes to mind? Do you think of calm, peaceful, posed family shots next to an old gnarled oak tree, perhaps? What about the whole family walking together across a green, grassy field, hand in hand, smiling and laughing? Well, the Jooste family shoot started off serenely enough, but this photo shoot soon turned out to be an afternoon of raucous laughter in the summer sunshine.

Samantha had already done a custom photo shoot with her daughter Megan, so when her folks came to visit from the US, she got in touch with me for an affordable family photo shoot. This time I had not only grandparents and parents but also three energetic children, running, jumping, playing and having the best time together in front of my lens. With quite a few photobombs happening, too!
The best way to capture priceless memories as a family is through a fun and affordable family photo shoot. And this was a really fun shoot! Seven people in a shoot is a lovely kind of delightful chaos: from photo bombing to purple feathers, from flowers to hand-stands, the Jooste family photo shoot was pure pret! The Joostes took my advice in this blog post on what to wear to a photo shoot and co-ordinated their outfits in a range of blues, whites and black, giving each person’s personality a chance to shine. And a few fun props made for some awesome Western-themed cowboy photos!

Each photo shoot teaches me something new and the Joostes taught me two things: 1. Never stick to a list of poses- some of the best shots happen in the moment and bring some of the most amazing results. 2. Families are big, messy, fun, chaotic, loud and downright incredible. Just look at all the joy in these photos!
