2020 has been full of unexpected life events, and if there is one thing we’re reminded of it’s how absolutely important the love and support of family is. When the busyness of life is removed and we’re in the still moments of our day, we’re reminded that what is most valuable in our lives is the quality time spent and bonds strengthened with those we love.
For more than 30 years, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to see families of all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life grow in their love through the memories they build. Watching families grow gives me such joy: from Boudoir sessions with young brides in love to engagement sessions with couples and from maternity and newborn sessions to growing family portraits, each session reminds me of the beauty of the love of a family.
There is one thing I always try to keep in mind when I photograph families and it is that no two families are alike in the way they express this love. Each has its own style, inside jokes, traditions, and dreams, and capturing this unique story and bond is my goal. Through a process of discovery and planning, I customize each session based on your one-of-a-kind connection, considering things like hobbies, locations, and favorite memories. I also consider the importance of tying in your photographs with your home decor – after all, displaying these moments of joy as daily reminders of love become an important focal point in your home.
Here’s a snippet from one of my favorite family sessions and how we captured the true essence of their spirit:
I’ve been photographing this family since their children were young and this year they wanted to do something really different. They told me they’re all computer nerds, but they all love rock ‘n’ roll and have always secretly wanted to be in a band and now want family portraits that reflected that. We had so much fun blasting the music and adding the smoke for a dramatic effect!”
