Unique San Antonio Family Portraits

December 12, 2017

When I approach any project, I challenge myself to discern and capture the personalities and relationships between the subjects. In family portrait sessions, this is especially important.  I have had the pleasure of being BJ's friend since 2001.  It was a profound privilege to preserve this special moment in his family's life. Today, I wanted to share a little bit of the thoughts and questions I think of behind the scenes.  

 

How do you get families to play and be themselves in front of a camera?

 It's as much about the expressions you don't see as the ones you do.

 Can you "hear" a photo?

Can you capture love, safety, comfort, joy, vulnerability, and hope in one moment?

 How do you preserve a child's boundless personality in a 4x6 frame? 

 Can you "feel" warmth in a photo?

 

 

 If she treasured one photo 40 years from today, would it be this one?

BJ and Liz, with all the brilliant and joyous moments you have shared in your lives together, I hope that this day - a typical, ordinary day in your neighborhood park - helps you to remember what makes your family life so special.  All you need is what you embody so well - love.
