One of my favorite things to do is go to a local park and take family portraits. The setting is beautiful, it gives everyone a chance to get some fresh air, and we always end up having some fun. That sure beats dragging kids to the mall, telling them they can’t buy anything, waiting in a long line at the studio and then getting a 15 minute session in which you are begging your kids to look at the camera.

In a park, we walk around, we explore, we have fun, and kids smile naturally. Stop torturing your kids and yourself with the mall studios. My Spring Half Price Photo Days are coming up soon.

Here are a few of the portraits I took during our Fall Half Price Sessions last year at Smithville Park in Eastampton, NJ
