Using Beloved for Families

I’ve been incorporating the Beloved technique now into everything I shoot, regardless of whether it is a “beloved session” for a couple, or whether its working with strangers in a commercial shoot.

But only recently did I decided to approach an entire family session with the Beloved concept from start to finish.

I’m happy to say that it was amazing!

One of the invites that I used with this family was “The Telephone Game”.  I asked the youngest to share a message with the rest of the family which would subsequently be passed along through a whisper down the line.  It was hilarious, and every member of the family wanted to take a turn.


Even though the Beloved Field Guide was created with couples in mind, so many of the invitations are adaptable to a variety of settings.  The guide is a really great resource to get you started, and even though I still use so much from the field guide, once you shoot several sessions its easy to start to think of invitations on your own.
