Portland Family Photography: Don’t Settle For So-So When You Can Have Superlative!
Let’s transform family portraits into sparkling family portrait keepsakes:
Let’s choose a setting that is sentimental, such as a favorite park, or settings around your family’s home; perhaps you have a beautiful deck, or a lovely fireplace we can use. Holidays are wonderful times of the year to have family portraits taken, because we can use your Christmas tree and holiday decorations to enhance the background.
Props add texture to photos. Imagine the next generation of people looking at your family photographs smiling fondly as they remember a house, a room, a vehicle, a piece of sporting equipment or a musical instrument.
Let’s include the cats, dogs, horses, birds and other animal family members. People often feel a particular attachment to an animal companion, so I can take an individual’s portrait with a pet, as well as including pets in a group portrait.
A popular trend is to coordinate everyone’s outfits, choosing colors and styles that work together. For example, everyone wears faded jeans and white shirts; or perhaps everyone wants to wear formal wear. For Christmas photos, let’s break out the crazy sweaters!
In complete contradiction to the above, a capricious strategy is for everyone to make a personal statement: from cocktail dresses to cargo pants, from quiet beige to ramped up orange. If this is in keeping with your family’s personality, then let the good times roll.
WHAT I DO FOR YOU
I will position everyone so that the background complements the family members; trees, fountains, statues, etc. will be softly focused, not sprouting out of anyone’s head. Also, I will use flattering light that makes your family members’ eyes twinkle. During the portrait session, I suggest natural and
comfortable posing that says, “happy,” “relaxed” and “friendly.”
After the family photography session, I edit all your photos, applying natural looking and creative techniques to remove background distractions, stray hairs, eyeglass glare, etc. Don’t worry about little blemishes, shaving cuts, etc. You will look artlessly beautiful and genuinely handsome.
Family portrait photography creates a colorful timeline, an animated history of weddings, births, holidays, reunions and parties, houses, vehicles and pets. The best collections of family photographs blend natural poses and true candid moments, letting your family’s personality shine. Together we can incorporate these aspects into your family photography session to create family photography treasures!
