Extended Family Photos • North Shore Photographer
Through my many years as a photographer, I have become a family photographer Boston clients have grown to love. They recognize my work as masterful, wholesome and fun. I strive to deliver photos that are as beautiful as they are touching, making my photographs beloved keepsakes that can be cherished by the whole family for years to come. It is my belief that family is perhaps the most important thing in a person’s life, and capturing that on film is my greatest passion.
In order to truly tie in the family dynamic as one unique whole, I like to get together with my clients before the big day and discuss some of the finer details with them. Oftentimes, this includes the colors they will wear. I like for the colors to complement each other as it makes for stunning photos, and in some cases, I like the colors to match. Different shades of blues or greens or reds are versatile options. I will also choose a background and props that complement the color scheme, such as a grassy field or a nice warm blanket in similar colors.
With the colors selected, it is then time to perform my job and be the family photographer Boston families know and love. First, I enjoy taking group shots of the entire family together. This not only solidifies that family dynamic, but it allows me to capture in one or more shots, several generations of the same family which I find to be an extraordinary sight to behold. From there, I break the family into different segments. I will have the children photographed with grandmother and grandfather, or mother and father with their children, the siblings together, and so on.
I like to especially focus on the children, as they are often the light of the rest of the family’s life. Focusing on the older children first allows them to just be themselves in front of the camera without the watchful eye of the other family members. This is where we get their cheeky smiles and devious smirks; twinkles in their eyes or their toothy grins as they laugh and play. Then, we involve any younger children, such as infants, and let them do the same atop a soft blanket. I love capturing their innocent smiles mid-laugh or the way they curiously reach for the items in nature that are around them.
Finally, I let the children be photographed with their parents. Sometimes this means both children with both parents. Other times, I like to separate them and let each parent have a child, as a child’s relationship with one parent in particular will come out nicely. There is a special bond between father and child, as well as mother and child, and this is something unique that I try to capture on film.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to family photography, and I enjoy mixing and matching them all. If you have interest in my Boston family photography services, you can reach me by PHONE/EMAIL to discuss the details of your family portraits.
