In this blog post, we’re going to talk about why it’s so easy and fun to hold your family photos in a studio setting. The aim was to capture candid moments in a playful and organic manner, resulting in a contemporary and editorial-style family photo collection. Families often want to capture the special bond and love they share in a fun and relaxed way. That’s why I love shooting in a studio setting – it provides a blank canvas for creativity and allows everyone to let loose.
Playful vs. Posed
During this session, I focused on capturing authentic moments rather than staged poses. I encouraged the family members to interact with each other naturally, engaging in playful activities and sharing genuine laughter. These unposed and candid moments truly reflect the joy and connection within the family.
Have Fun With Color
To enhance the contemporary and editorial style, we paid special attention to the use of color. Vibrant hues added a sense of liveliness and energy to the photographs. By using a mixture of bold and muted tones, I aimed to create a visually striking collection that showcases the family’s personality and playfulness. I wanted the images to feel like a glimpse into their lives, telling a story and evoking emotions. This approach creates a series of family photographs that will be so fun to look back on for years to come.
Book A Studio Session
This family studio session was a colorful, candid, and playful experience. By embracing organic interactions, vibrant colors, and a contemporary editorial style, I was able to create a collection of photographs that truly capture the essence of this family’s love and joy. This family session was originally planned for an outside location, but the cold came in quickly so we reserved a studio space for them. For the months of January-March, I reserve family sessions for at-home or studio spaces such as this.
