Family portraits. Capturing feelings.

I always say that when you shoot portraits people have to recognize themselves in the photo. This thing sounds logic but it's not actually easy to achieve. As a professional you need to make people comfortable in front your camera especially if there are kids around. As many instructions you give to them as much artificial will be the image, and probably you will get paid, but they won't put that photo in their living room...


A family is about feelings, naturalness, spontaneity and love... Let them be themselves, try to be part of the group and just capture what you see.

My advice to shoot families is get good lighting (better flash than continuous) and speed enough to capture the action because kids move quick, so, you must be fast...
