Family portraits are a must in my eyes. They are a keep sake that you will have forever and will look back fondly over for years to come.
When I shoot a family portrait session I love to have fun with all of the individuals and try to capture their personalities. I do the standard look at the camera group shot as they are still a must but also encourage everyone just to be themselves and get some sneaky candid shots as well.
All my family sessions are taken outside, using natural light. Late afternoon light is my favourite.
