Capturing “Life as it is” – Family Photography

Family Photography are always one of my favorite things to capture! Often when we think of family photos, we think of everyone standing in a line “Cheesing”, but they can be so much more than that! A family photo offers an amazing opportunity to capture the love you have for one another and the simple memories you often forget. For this family photography session I spent two hours being a “fly on the wall”, while the family went about daily life. Initially all the kid’s were posing for the camera everytime they would see me, but the quickly forgot all about me and I became a fixture of their surroundings. The kid’s ran around the yard, jumped on the couch, and one even broke their arm when they slipped from the monkey bars, making this on of the most eventful family photo sessions I have experienced.
