When I first heard from Kara, I was sure she understood my photography style right away! Her family was vacationing on Cape Cod for her parent's 30th anniversary and they were looking forward to surprising them with a Family photo session. I ask all of my client's to fill out a questionnaire and when I saw Kara's answer to what draws her to my photography style, I knew we were going to have a great time!
"Your photographs are very crisp and showcase the personalities of the subjects, not just the photograph itself. It's clear you have a talent for really capturing the essence of the subjects, which is really important to us. There are other photographers who produce great photos, but being too stylized and too posed is not really my family's style. We'd much rather be captured laughing and being genuine in the moment (though we know some posing is necessary!)."
Kara's family was really fun to work with - so genuine and lots of laughs, jokes, and a three month old baby to steal the show occasionally! It was easy to see how much love her family has for each other...and having her parent's celebrate was such a big milestone made it a fun session also!
Once we finished up all of their family photos and photos of every couple and family group, we took a few of them just "hanging out". While I do love a photo of everyone interacting together, there's something really special about catching everyone just being themselves too!
If you're vacationing on the Cape, or a full-time resident, in need of some updated photos, please contact me here! My summer is filling up quickly, but I can usually accommodate a few last minute requests!
