Family Photography in Boston
Family photography is about capturing the moment in time, from parents and children all the way to second and third families. This includes newborns as well! Boston is one of the oldest cities around in the Western hemisphere but you already knew that. This isn't a history lesson, it's a photography session. It seems like every brick in Boston has a wicked rich history! Along with those rich histories come stories and pictures of families. And that's what we're here for.
Did you ever notice the happy families are the ones with family portraits everywhere in the house, running out of wall- space?
Being the best photographer in Boston means more than just pointing your iPhone at some people and saying "say queso!". We know the in's and out's of taking the perfect picture. For starters- most people hate having their picture taken; so imagine trying to capture 4+ people who hate pictures at one time. We know how to change their whole perspective and make them feel like confident models! That said, we only control half the battle, behind the camera. Your family chooses when and where brings the game!
As a parent you only want the absolute best for your kid. So why not give them the best photography Bean-town has to offer? Family photo's are supposed to be fun and exciting. It's memories you'll cherish forever.
After our thousands of photo shoots and experience; you pick up a trick or two (okay, much more, what can we say being the best). It all comes from practicing and critical evaluation. For example; we are encouraging you and your family to get comfortable being close and snug together. We want to create a welcoming and loving environment for every beautiful family. But pro-tip: If you have them start putting their heads together, it begins to look more like a romantic photo rather than a family bond. So be sure to get close but not too close!
Everyone has their favorite shirt and pants. We can't put our finger on it but we just feel unstoppable in that outfit. But when it comes to photography, it's a different animal. We don't recommend wearing black as it's very controversial to the camera. The camera however does love lighter palette tones.
Every family has it's own personality and with every member comes an even more differentiated personality. Don't stress about it too much. We can't wait to see you!
Being a professional photographer is a serious manner. You have to understand how to work in the least serious manner possible. You read that right. The less serious a photographer can be, typically means they knows what they are doing. A very rigid to the book photographer is doing it all wrong. Photography is all about the exact unique moment. Mishaps from the family are part of the fun!
We always like to come out to you or meet you in Boston somewhere, as taking advantage of the foregrounds. Gone are the days of forming a single file line up of your family against the living room wall. Any modern photographer knows that making it your own is half the definition of photography.
