A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting a family portrait session with Clara and her daughter Montana. Clara and I used to work together a few years ago. It was fun catching up and hearing the latest news of my old workplace.
This was the first family portraits I have done, so I was very excited to try something new. Everyone was great and enthusiastic, which of course made my job easier. We really lucked out with the weather, it was a baking hot 27C, which felt a little odd for end of April. And just as we were finishing up our portraits the clouds were moving in. Luckily we were all done by the time the massive thunderstorm moved in… The wind and sudden rain was crazy. Very tornado like! But all in all it was a success!
Clara and Montana, I am so happy you chose me to do this session. I had a blast hanging with you guys… and talking a little Twilight :P
Here are some of my favs from the day:
Christmas time is a great time for family portraits since you’re most likely to get everyone together (and hopefully they’ll all be smiling!). This togetherness is especially true in my family. There’s a lot of us, on both my mom’s side and my dad’s side, and we really only get together for holidays and some special occasions. Just yesterday my parents had a get-together and asked that we do some nice portraits of the family. Turns out it’s difficult to photograph your family; they like to talk back :P
Anyways, here are some of the shots I got. Hopefully the family will enjoy them…!
Wishing a wonderful holiday (or un-holiday) season, to you and yours.
