You're drawn to photos that show couples and families as they are in real life. You most want to see images where you look authentic and natural, interacting with family members as if there isn't a camera pointed at you! These moments aren't created; they are slightly directed, posed in the best lighting, and cued to let the real magic unfold. The resulting photos show you as you really are. We can do these photos at your home, in a nearby park, or the beach; wherever you feel most comfortable.
You're drawn to photos where the subjects are acting playful and silly, maybe mugging for the camera a little bit, maybe running or jumping, maybe on a playground or with props. You know life is full of the good, bad, and ugly and you're unafraid to try it all and see what moments happen. You want to remember the moment as it happened, not as someone created it! Photo shoots like this are active with lots of walking, running, playing, and laughing with a wide open mind. Rather than posing, I encourage play and movement and try to catch all the genuine laughter we can!
You are drawn to more traditionally composed photos where the subjects are looking at the camera, mostly centered in the frame, and where everyone looks their best. We can do these photos in a park, an urban environment, or the beach - whichever is right for your family. And sure, you sometimes like the silly, playful stuff, too, but you're more interested in getting a photo where everyone is smiling and paying attention. Let the playing and silliness happen AFTER the photo shoot is done!
