Fun Family Portrait Session

I loved this video of a fun family portrait session from Matt Mason Photography. Looked like they had lots of fun, and Matt captured some really excellent and unique family portraits in an urban setting. These “fusion” videos that combine still images with video footage are all the rage, and can help your photography business stand out in a crowded market. Enjoy the video below, and be sure to come join in the fun over at Shuttermom University for more photo tips and photography business coaching. See you there!
