I love taking portraits of families. It can be challenging because kids are involved, but I always find it rewarding, especially when I feel like I’ve captured the spirit and love of a family in the frames that I’ve made of them. I REALLY love when I get to photograph families at their home. These sessions tend to be more comfortable, more relaxed, and—most importantly—more genuine.
A couple of months ago I was hired by the Johnson family to take their family portraits in their home. I knew Brandon, the dad, because he is an amazing artist who happened to do the cover art for the graphic novel my husband wrote. I have admired Brandon’s work for a long time, so I was floored that he wanted me to take his family portraits. I hadn’t met his wife and kids, but I knew they were going to be awesome, and I was right. And their home? Incredible. Cozy, but minimalistic. Full of art and color and lines. I fell in love with it instantly. It was so fun to photograph in and it felt like the sixth member of the family. More family sessions like this, please!
