We're truly lucky to be able to meet so many new people every day and travel to new places, regardless of how close or far it is. Our jobs are a constant exploration of the world around us. We're perpetually engulfed in changing scenery, different smiles, and altering lights and shadows. But that's what's so heartening about taking family portraits, you get to see the roots. You get to see the very soul of that family and what they stand for, and it's always beautiful. Nourishable love is a magnificent thing to be enveloped in and an even more incredible thing to capture.
The youngest kids are always the most fun. They're always the most animate, regardless of what emotion they are conveying. They can be a bit much at times of cooperation but that's also the charm of it. But there's nothing quite like a young child's smile. It's just so pure and real. Every child is at it's most raw character; blunt and censorless. So full of exploration of their world around them and maybe that's where we connect so well. They're just as encompassed in the beauty of the world around them that maybe that's just it. Photographers are usually the part of the child that never grew up.
Here are a few shots from some amazing families that have birthed some of the most incredible and unique people we've ever met.
