Stories From Behind The Lens
Shenanigans and smiles with the Flavius Family
Although the temperature was chilly you wouldn't have known it from the warmth and happiness with the Flavius Family. You know a photoshoot is going to go great when you're laughing and talking like family members as you're walking to the location.
The shoot went great and I captured them in more of a natural "this is who we are" way versus telling them what and how to do it. I made suggestions and then followed the sound of the laughter snapping the whole time.
An added bonus, their son was turning two the following day so I combined a small birthday-centric shoot with the family session. I was also reminded of how fast toddlers can truly be.
One thing the family stressed was not being boring with their pictures. I didn't want that for them either and our shoot was anything but boring. It was lively and fun throughout. I always strive to have a relaxed shoot because the camera is only one part of it. The rest of it is the relationship between you and who you're shooting. It was great building a relationship with this adorable family and capturing it with my camera.
Big thanks to the Flavius Family!
