I always tell our clients their family session should feel like a slice of life…
I feel way less interested in a perfectly manicured photo with everyone staring directly at the camera, smiling blankly, with every hair in place. Sure, at first glance it looks nice, but when you look back on that photo in 30 years- or better yet, when your great grandkids look back at that photo in 60 years- it won’t really tell a story (beyond ‘we were in this location one time and brushed our hair before) 😂. I want your photos to take you back to a specific time in your life, imperfections and all, and remind you what it felt like ❤️
This adorable family is moving away from their beloved Brooklyn and wanted to capture some photos as a representation of this time in their lives to take with them!! We started the morning on the waterfront in Dumbo and ended up in Gowanus (more shoots in Gowanus, please!!) and just overall had a fantastic time chatting about life + family, while I captured them generally just being themselves 😉
It was absolutely perfect. Stray hairs and all.
