When I photograph families I usually start with posed photos, then I ask them to take a walk or play a game so I can capture fun, candid photos. These are my favorites because they show the family dynamics, everyone’s unique personality and genuine smiles.

It’s been so amazing to document this family’s dynamics. I consider my job well done when the mom tells me that the photos show her children’s personalities well! On a side note, don’t you love how well this beautiful mama chose the outfits for this session?! They all go so well together but at the same time are not too “matchy-matchy”. It is so important to take time and prepare for family portraits. An important part of this preparation is carefully choosing what to wear.

Photos, especially candid ones, have a powerful impact and can warm up our hearts when we see them years later. Time flies and we see it particularly clear once we have children and we watch them change so fast! I think every family should have their professional photos taken at least once a year to document these special moments.
