Mini Session Contest | Family Photography

Oh, I had such a great time with these wonderful families! My husband was gracious to go along with my crazy idea of dragging a couch into the great outdoors. It was SO worth it. The kids had fun. We even heard people walking by commenting on why there would be a couch in the middle of the woods.

For a mini session each client gets 10 pictures. But really, who wouldn’t want MORE right?! That’s where YOU come in. I told my 4 families that I would let 1 family get more than the 10 pictures. By votes.

Here’s how you can help, if you would like to vote:

1. Please go to my photography facebook page and “LIKE” Erica Lynn Photography (If you don’t have a facebook page move on to #2)

2. Please COMMENT at the end of this post in the COMMENTS for which family picture you are voting for.

3. If you are partial to one picture and/or are friends with one of these families and would like to help them win their pictures, feel free to share this post with your friends and family.


#1. The S Family, a sweet family of 5 but soon to be 6!! This was momma’s idea for a picture and I love it!


The S Family

#2. The H Family I chose this picture because to me it was such an intimate picture… yet this is life with kids. NO PRIVACY! Can I get an AMEN?!


The H Family

#3. The B Family What a creative family! Mom brought a couple different props and these letters were perfect. Too bad we didn’t get to the mustaches. Save them for next time!! 🙂 I love how their youngest has his letter upside down and that sweet face!!!


The B Family

#4. The T Family The siblings were so adorable together. Maybe it was because their shoot was the coldest since they were last so the siblings were snuggling to keep warm. I thought they were so sweet with each other.


The T Family

Alright, it’s time to pick your favorite. Leave your vote in the comments!

Ready, Set, GOOOOOOO!!

(voting will close next Sunday, Nov. 3rd at midnight)
