Being a family photographer is definitely a fun and interesting job. I have the amazing opportunity to meet wonderful families and to capture their photos. My goal is to capture natural looking images that you will have to look back on for years and years and to say, “yup, this is exactly how I remember us at this time”. I definitely take posed photos, but I also love capturing the natural glances, the fun interaction and all of the love a family has to offer. I try to keep family photos natural (while still making you look your best!!) and I always try to get some candid photos that really shows what your interactions as a family are like. And, since no two families are the same, no two family photo sessions for me are the same. That is part of why I love this job!
The family I have had the pleasure of meeting and photographing before…well I photographed the smaller 50% of them before but they joined me again for a full family session. Last year we had a tough time trying to get Mr. E to smile for me and that did not change this time around. I love the challenge but also just go with the flow. If a child does not want to smile at me, I take the opportunity to capture some more serious glances. These are so beautiful as well. This session definitely show the many faces of children and a family. We captured sad faces, serious faces and many many happy faces as well. We captured tummy tickle faces and big hug embraces. We even captured a revolutionary grin 😉 This session was a pleasure to photograph and I hope this family loves this documentation of the many faces of themselves!
Scrunchy smile face….one of my personal favourites!
These serious faces do melt my heart…a lot!
As a child and family photographer, I do A LOT to get smiles at times…in fact, I have very little shame when it comes to singing, telling horrible jokes, making crazy noises, etc., to get people to smile. I was pulling out all of the stops for this little guy and he just looked at me with those big sad eyes and those amazing cheeks and snuggled in with his mama. However, this is one of my favourites from the day!
Kissy face smiles…also a favourite of mine haha
I love moments just like this. Being a family photographer doesn’t get much better…
Since Mr. E was giving me this look, dad thought he’d do his best impersonating face! It’s pretty spot on 🙂
…with some tickles from dad and some tickles from my “tickle monster duster” we did get some great smiles from Mr. E after all….oh, and possibly some candy was involved!
Big brother was full of wonderful smiles and expressions throughout this entire family photo session!
Mr. E found my duster and turned on me with it…I love this grin here as he’s coming after me for a tickle… I told mom I would name this photo “When Children Revolt”.
I always think it’s amazing when I ask mom & dad when the last time they had a professional photo taken together and the answer is often, “at our wedding”. I always like to capture one of the parents together. I wish I had more photos of my parents together…it seems, looking back, one was always taking them (my mom) and so there were never any of my parents together. I wish I had more so I make it my mission to capture one at each family session.
