Photograph the things that are important to you. Is there are specific place that means something to you? Is it your family relationships and interaction (of course), is it your old horse that won’t be around much longer? The more meaningful stuff you can pack into your session, the more meaningful it will be. Don’t worry Mom of lots-of-kids reading this post, just getting your family all to one place at the same time is meaningful! Really you don’t need to do more than that. BUT if there’s a special place, or animal, or heirloom, or whatever it is, consider including it in your session as well.
