A model family AND a family of models

Here are some images from one of my family photojournalism sessions. If this gorgeous family didn't all look alike, you'd think they were a bunch of models I assembled in a casting call.

Don't know how well they know their hip hop history, but they certainly channeled a Kid N Play photo from back in the day.

This post is an example of family photojournalism, which is a contemporary spin on the traditional family portrait. There's no need to make a grand, complicated production out of taking family photos. Those kinds of photos don't even reflect what your family really looks like. Family photojournalism is about capturing the awesome images that occur during the course of everyday family life.

I can do this for your family, as well. Scroll to the bottom to see more examples or contact me now so we can talk about how I can help you capture some great photos of your family in a way that fits right into your busy schedule.
