As a photographer I have always searched for the story behind the picture. Whether I am photographing indoors or outdoors, I try to capture the relationship and connection of the family members. I am and will always be a photographer who loves photojournalism.
One of the biggest differences between family portrait photography and wedding photography is that in a family portrait session, I almost always have control of the light. It is what gives color and life to the photograph.
I avoid planning ahead for a session even if I am familiar with the location. I don’t predict how or where I will take pictures. Planning ahead, more often than not, takes away from the natural thought process I have in the moment which is usually the best moment to photograph. I like to bring calmness to every session and approach it as a blank slate. Every session and every person is unique. Therefore, I want every photo to be unique.
