Family photography is both a joy and a challenge. If you have ever been in a picture with babies or toddlers, you know what I mean. It can be hard to get them to look anywhere, let alone smile. However, this year as I have started shooting more family sessions, I have realized that I really enjoy capturing the family dynamics. Kids have such funny and unique personalities and I love trying to capture that in a picture. It can be a nice change of pace from the highly structured weddings to just hang out with a family and see what happens.
So, below are a few of my favorite images from 2016. I'm looking forward to the families I will meet in 2017!
