I believe all families have their own little universe that they keep to themselves; I want to capture just a little bit of that so when you look at your images your instant reaction is to say "that is so us!"
My family photoshoots are informal, funposed and unposed. I approach family photography in a relaxed way and although the first few shots are always awkward as we move on and get to know each other, a family’s own uniqueness tends to come out. There are so many aspects of family that are cool to me; I feel like a family is kind of a team! I love it when they do dumb and funny stuff together, high-five and have in-jokes. It is often led by the kids, that’s why I call it Unposed or Kid-Focused Photography – they’ll be the ones to act the “fool” sooner and come up with fun ideas! But it's not all mayhem, I tend to fluctuate on-shoot between getting crazy moments and sandy toes, and stopping to get an engaging portrait concentrating on the eyes.
I promise you'll enjoy the experience and love your images - they'll be of your treasured loved ones and they'll be soulful and beautiful, fun and creative.
