As I’ve said before, I believe the best way to get to know a family and show their true dynamic is to spend a few hours with them in their home, doing the things they love to do as a family. The Anderson’s invited me in on a typical Saturday morning, waking up in PJ’s, breakfast, wrestling and a dance party and a neighborhood walk. I’m ashamed to say that these photos are from last year, and we have a whole new session in between this one and now, but that will wait for another day.

One or three from a recent family session.

Best of 2011 Portraits

January 27, 2012

From engagement sessions to Day in the Life with families to my version of professional headshots, I love the challenge of trying to tease out a personality or relationship and then click the shutter at just the right time. There is nothing more satisfying than getting a shot that captures someone’s essence perfectly. Here is a sampling of the many 2011 sessions I will be blogging over the next few months. Thank you to all of my wonderful friends, family, and clients who spent time with me last year, and I’m so excited about what’s to come!

Everything about this session was special for me. First of all, it’s the first example of a new session I’m offering where I spend a few hours in the home with a family capturing daily life. It is such a fun way to see the real side of a family in their own environment. Families read together, and load dishwashers together and when dad comes home from work it’s a huge event and those are the beautiful daily moments of family life.
This is my cousin’s family, especially dear to me since we’re very close. We’ve celebrated many milestones together through life from living together as babies, standing up at each other’s weddings, and a little over a year ago I photographed the twins’ birth. I feel lucky every moment I get to spend with them now that we live near each other again.
Many of the “props” we used in the session have a story – I made the paper crane mobile for Honnah and Mia when they were born, and Sonora created the painting underneath it, and Lisa and I were so excited when she found the vintage tricycle on one of our Goodwill dates. I love that this session is just jam-packed with meaningful elements for this family so that they can look back and remember the little moments.
