I always like to incorporate parents in my sessions but my approach to family images is relaxed and natural.
It wasn’t so long ago that family photography would often mean a gallery of formal, posed images and straight-on, traditional portraits with everyone looking at the camera. But whilst these sessions undeniably result in images of you as a group, they rarely show what it is that makes you a family; a family with all its unique connections, interactions and intimacies.
I prefer family photos that are more emotive, so, when it’s time for a few family shots, there’s no awkward posing. Most of the time my subjects aren’t even looking at the camera. I prefer to focus on the baby and the growing connection between you all as you adjust to your new family dynamic.
