I Love Family Portraits

It is very satisfying for me to capture and save moments of a loving family interacting with one another.  The technical aspects of using a camera to take a photo become secondary to just letting a family do what they do in an interesting environment with good lighting. 

So this wonderful family is the other winner of my Thanksgiving photo session giveaway.  I have known them for many years.  It was my pleasure to hang out with them for a little while.

We used flash with an umbrella (above).

We worked in the breezeway of the horse stable with ambient light only.

And backlit with the sun, exposing for the shadows and letting the background blow out. 

I finally remember to bring some Christmas props to use for this shoot and I think they worked great.  It gave the Children something to focus on and it establishes that we are actually taking Christmas portraits.  This is adorable if I may.

I enjoy a series like this showing the different expressions.

The old horse stable makes for an interesting environment in my opinion.

So, sorry about being late to the shoot.  I'm glad you guys weren't paying me for this one. :)

Merry Christmas.  You guys be blessed.
