An alternative approach to family photography
Here’s the thing. When your family photographs are passed down through the generations shouldn’t they be about more than just what your family look like? Wouldn’t you rather you’re able to show your children, and your children be able to show their children (and their children after them) what their lives were like – who they were? To know who they were and what they did when they’d forgotten anyone was looking? What made them laugh, what made them cry. How they played, how they fought, how they smiled. The weird little things they did.
And shouldn’t you be in the photographs too?
I approach family photography the same way I approach weddings. Unscripted, unrehearsed and candid – with no expectations. Just you and your family being yourselves, pressure free. Your families spirit and personality won’t be found lined up against a backdrop in a stuffy studio somewhere. It’s in the things you do together and in the everyday moments…
Day in the Life Family Sessions: Moment driven, authentic family photography
Documentary family photography doesn’t mean no looking at the camera! It doesn’t mean from the outside perspective, glued to the proverbial wall, detached and disengaged.
Kids in particular are often going to pose for the camera spontaneously. Those pictures are just as revealing as the candid ones. They can show the face they want to show. Both ways reveal and both are equally valid so we can make those pictures too.
“Not only are you an incredible photographer, you’re an amazing person too. I’m blown away by our family photos. The pictures perfectly reflect the emotions and beauty on the day, as well as all the fun, laughs and smiles….Thank You!” – Agi Strzelec
