What pops into your mind when you think about family photography? Everyone dressed in their best looking into the camera? Loads of smiling and hugging? Everything is beautiful and amazing? Right?
Well, if you've been following me for any length of time you already know that I'm just not into that. And of course, these images are gorgeous and there is a place and a time for this type of photography! But there is also so much beauty in our everyday lives and I'm here to make amazing photographs of it. Which also happens to be way easier on the kids, and by proxy, on you.
In 2019, I had the pleasure of being invited into the lives and homes of some incredible families where I was given the opportunity to photograph the beauty of their everyday lives. Here are my top ten photos from 2019 that prove family photography can be so much more interesting and unique than the color-coordinated portrait perfection you're used to seeing.
Family photography is more than just about what you looked like, it's about your relationships and your daily routines; it's about your home and places you love to go; it's the way your son twirls his hair when you're reading him a book and the "I want to do it by myself" phase your daughter is going through that means her pants are perpetually on backward.
Your everyday life is beautiful, document it. You can hire me or make amazing photos yourself using your smartphone. You may think you're living room is a mess now, but in ten years, you'll be thankful to have the memory.
