I love when I have the opportunity to photograph families over the years...it is perhaps, one of the greatest ways a family can thank a photographer...to come back for photos over and over, as they grow.
This is one of those families.
Return clients have the advantage of knowing and trusting my skills and the style in which I work. This results in a more relaxed family, which then produces photos like these below. Not once did this mom tell her children what to do...she allowed me the space to capture them in their quiet exploration and little moments together. Yes, I know they are all dressed in nicer clothes than they usually dig in the dirt for...it was a scheduled photo shoot that the family invested money in!
As a mom, if given the choice, I would much rather have photos of my family engaged in a moment together doing something that made us (or at least the kids) forget a photographer was even around verses photos overly posed and 'perfect'. I want to capture connections between my subjects. CLICK THE PLAY BUTTON TO SEE MORE BELOW...AND DON'T FORGET TO LEAVE THE FAMILY SOME LOVE IN THE COMMENTS SECTION AT THE END OF THIS POST!
