When I photograph a family during a lifestyle photo shoot, I like everything to be natural- the setting, the activities, the facial expressions and the emotions. Families should be comfortable and relaxed, unposed and un-styled. My focus is to draw out real emotion and true personal expression.
In the family photo shoot below, I worked with Bridget and Chris and their kids, Jack and Sloane. This was one of my favorite family lifestyle shoots. Marin Headlands was the perfect location to give this shoot a bohemian vibe that really ‘fit’ the family. With sunset lighting and tall wheat grass, the environment was natural and comfortable. The family was able to relax and be free-spirited, whether running around, standing on rocks or jumping in the air. It was truly a memorable shoot. Thank you Bridget and Chris for letting me capture your beautiful family in such a beautiful environment.
