Black and White Family Photography


The power of black and white family photography is that it draws the subject forward, letting the rest fade into the background. While not every photo looks good in black and white, some family photos in this monotone style beautifully spotlight emotion and connection.

The value of black and white family photos

As a Seattle candid family photographer, I love capturing moments that bring back family memories. Plus, black and white photos enhance emotional depth, making each image a striking piece of art. Whether displayed in a gallery wall or a single frame, these photos turn your home into an art gallery.

Choosing black and white for your family photos highlights candid moments and appeals to modern families. It emphasizes emotions, turning your family photos into timeless memories.

Black and white family photography is valuable because it captures the essence of moments without distractions. The absence of color brings focus to emotions and connections, creating timeless images that resonate deeply. These photos become cherished heirlooms, preserving family history in a classic, elegant style.

If you want to add a classic touch to your family photos this year, consider a black and white session. It’s a beautiful way to freeze family memories.

My sessions with families are always storytelling in nature, and candid in the final look. The majority of photos that I delivery for my clients are in full glorious color, however, if this is a type of look that speaks to you, I’m here to deliver. The monotone and muted look of black and white is rooted in the origin of photography. After all, before photographers were capturing the world in vivid color, they were doing so in monochromatic film tones.
