I met this family for the first time last fall for a session that combined posed shots with the shots showing their connection (or in other words, not necessarily looking at the camera). When I first started out in photography 7 years ago, that was my goal, to show connections by just photographing a family while they interacted. After my first few sessions with families, I learned that parents/grandparents actually wanted more of the posed shots. So, session after session, year after year, I’ve been aiming to mainly get those posed shots in that my clients seem to want, unless otherwise requested, which was usually just a shot or two, if any at all. This time it was requested going into the session that I provide some of those shots, so I felt a bit rusty, but at the same time that’s where my passion for photography was heading in the beginning, so it wasn’t too hard. With a handsome baby boy and a gorgeous couple like this, I could have continued this session for hours in various locations, but babies call the shots and when they’re done, we’re done!
