Embracing the Chaos
Embracing the chaos - the phrase that rang out when this wonderful mother of six month old twins originally called to plan her family portrait session. She and her husband have a great energy and partnership in parenting.
We began the session at their Brookline home, using the sunlight streaming in through the living room windows. Later we all bundled up and went to a local park to get a few images outside.
Part of the fun of documenting a family in a photojournalist style to watching and waiting for the moment that expresses the family's energy and the gestures that translate their love and affection.
This is life, unscripted and unfiltered.
Documentary storytelling shows your family as individual and specific, pieces that come together as a whole as well as the relationships between family members.
Family Photojournalism in your home
Another reason I love photographing people in their own spaces is that these images become time capsules of so much more than the age of the people in the image. These documentary family photographs will certainly recall what life felt like, the memory of what was your everyday routine that will, of course, evolve.
Your life, what it is really like in all it's delightful chaos and beautiful imperfections, is a story worth telling.
And Of course, we got some camera aware smiling family portraits. Those are important too!
