One of the things I have loved the most about photographing families of all ages over the past 15 years is that no two family photoshoots are ever the same. You can put two different families in the exact same location at the exact same time of day and no matter what, the outcome will vary. Because each family is unique and bring their mix of personalities, ages, clothing, etc... and that is what makes it so great, because YOUR family photos will be unique to you and your crew.
I like to say that every family photo session is a dance between me, the photographer, and my clients. Sometimes there is an instant connection and sometimes I have to work a little harder to find the connection or wait until little ones warm up to me... and every rare once in awhile no matter how much I try, I cant find the way in... but I like to stay open and adaptive to people and what they want to show me.
This beautiful family was so much fun to take photos of! They were easy going, laughed a lot and trusted me when I had them do some silly things, and I love how these turned out. Thank you Meredith family! You are a joy and I hope to have the chance to work with you again.
