Let’s talk Family Photo Sessions! My family photo albums have always been something I’ve treasured. However, we didn’t have a single professional family photo shoot when I was growing up. In my family albums, every single beautiful photo I have was taken in a candid moment by one of us. This is *almost* ideal when I think about how I want to remember my family and life’s moments through photos. The only thing lacking is more photos of all of us having fun together.
My love for these captured moments has shaped the way I photograph families. I believe that happy smiles are always better when they’re plastered on the faces of people actually having fun! When I photograph your family, my aim is to capture all the little quirks and expressions and relationships within it that make it unique.
Do we have to pose?
We’ll always try to get that one photo where everyone smiles at the camera. It might be perfect or imperfect, but I don’t really aim to capture perfect. I think what will become important to you and your kids in 20 years are images from your family photo sessions that visually show the connections between you all. Giggly laughs, a smile that means trouble, a tiny little hand holding your finger. Things that change and disappear as kids grow but can exist in photos forever. I want to capture connection and warmth, fun and play. Things like searching for crabs in rock pools, building sandcastles and stomping in puddles. Moments where your kids run to each other for a big squishy hug (or to tackle each other to the ground)!
