ten steps to get creative & authentic family photographs

recently, in honor of mother’s day, i was asked to put together some tips for www.photo.net  on capturing family photographs…  CLICK HERE FOR LINK ARTICLE

it was a good experience to sit down in the quiet and think through what i do almost subconsciously.  

my number 1 tip is about engaging.  be engaging, encourage engaging.  allow, welcome, and celebrate each family members unique way of engaging.

i realized how much i value capturing movement…and talked a little more in depth of how to photograph real; authentic moments…

about the “in-between”.  the moments in-between “poses” usually tell a much stronger story & yield more emotion & beauty.

…about how the use of light is not only a way to push one’s photography skills to the next level – but is a perfect compliment to elicit emotions…and to embrace the realities of the complexities of family… i hope you can gain some encouragement or motivation to photograph your own family more, or even the families whom you photograph. thanks for checking it out!
