Family Portraits in Stamford, CT
A few weeks ago, I made family portraits with Amanda, John, and their daughter Claire who are dear friends of the Lunnie’s – clients I have been making family portraits with for years.
In our initial conversation I got a sense of their relationships together and as a family. They expressed how important it was for them to make portraits together now. I suggested the idea of crafting the session around creating an album for them. They were excited, and so was I.
A family album can capture the qualities of the relationships you share. An album can tell a story about your family. An album is filled with precious moments that evoke the feelings you have for one another and capture those feeling for you forever. An album tells the story of your family to loved ones for generations. It’s an invitation to sit together, and share a time capsule of special moments.
Every time I go into a shoot with the intention of making an album, I plan a wide variety of portraits and allow for a fun and easy time together.
The feedback I get again and again from clients is that we created a comfortable space for them to relax and be themselves.
John told me, “As a kid, I never had this. I really wanted to do this for our family.” He also told me that the photos we make together would be the first photos their friends and family would see of Claire because of the pandemic.
All I wanted was to make portraits that Amanda and John would cherish forever. And I was touched to get a message from John, “These photos brought me to tears.” ❤️
WHY MAKE FAMILY PORTRAITS RIGHT NOW?
That feeling you have when you’re thinking about the people you love is exactly what I aim to capture in photographs when we make family portraits together.
When those feelings are documented, and turned into art, they become heirlooms and memories that you’ll cherish forever. Years will pass by, and still, whenever you look at these portraits, you’ll be reminded of what you felt for that person all over again.
