I love photographing siblings when they are young and quick to hug. Look at these two, no personal space required. Take these photos as often as you can.
When photographing a family, I always remind Mom and Dad to take a photo together. I love to provoke an authentic smile by asking about those FORMER sexy Sundays with coffee, brunch and the newspaper. What is life like today? Blessed with children, we often forget that our spouse is more than a domestic partner.
These brothers have the most beautiful coloring and their fall photo session truly enhances their natural cuteness. I adore their natural smiles, bright shining eyes and coziness. Thanks mom for selecting such fun and laid-back clothing.
I named my photography business RealPhoto because I adore a natural, honest photo. The image below, taken a few weeks ago, captures siblings and their beloved dog. They were not posing for the camera and I LOVE IT! Mom also adores this photo, capturing a pause in our photo session so beautifully.
It is hard to get a Huckleberry Finn type of boy slow down for a photo session. Why should he sit when Central Park is filled with rocks to climb and dogs to pet?
I love this soulful photo of a boy I have watched grow up so handsomely. Soulful eyes and a peaceful smile.
I recently photographed this precious 2 year old in Central Park. He never stopped moving! It brought his mother and I such joy to capture his beautiful face in a photo, for a brief second. After this moment he immediately began to climb the rocks like a little billy goat.
Thank goodness my 3rd child, my only boy, taught me that some boys never stop moving.
I took this photo of my son over Christmas break. It is treasure to me. Graham’s braces are off and his skin is pretty. He is not quite a man yet no longer a boy. He worked on his hair and wore a designer cool shirt. I insisted on collared!
This photo marks Graham’s transition years. Even his soft smile reminds me that he is self-conscious yet not too cool for mom’s camera. Whew, a treasure as I wrote.
This photo, wrapped up under the 2015 Christmas tree, made the perfect gift for grandparents. Dad looks so HAPPY and proud with his three children. My RealPhoto tag line is “Celebrating Life with Photography” and this meaningful photo says it all.
The days are long and the years are short. I am happy and sad to see these cards framed together. My precious family is growing up fast and Graham will be an only child soon.
I am so glad that I took photos each year of my children. I am so glad that I stayed up late to prepare my Christmas cards. Where did all these years go?
