Nobody likes to pose and hold a perfect smile for 45 minutes straight, especially kids. The kids end up crying, and the parents frazzled. Maybe you have been lucky enough to never have experienced this, but as a photographer I have seen many stressed out families on picture day. It's no fun for anyone.
I am not a traditional family photographer. Let me explain. For years I tried really hard to get the perfectly posed family portrait. And I have learned that what I do best is telling the story of your family through a series of both artistic and documentary style images that show the natural emotion and connection between family members.
Maybe you love to cook together or go hiking or fishing. Maybe you love to go for walks on the beach. Whatever it is your family loves to do, whether it be having fun in your home or taking an adventure, I would love to photograph it.
Let's take a different approach. I want your session to be fun and natural. I want you to interact how you normally do, doing what you love. I may give you some direction, but mostly I want you to just do what you already do - be your own family. These are the special moments, the things that tell the story of your family. I want you to look at your pictures in 20 years and remember just how special those moments were.
