These are our signature Creative Portraits. We find the nicest light, background, and people (the family and wedding party, of course.) While they are chatting and waiting to be photographed more formally, one of us starts shooting these candid portraits, capturing the mood, chemistry and dynamic among family and friends. Our clients love having these timeless images which so reflect the personality and spirit of their loved ones.

How to Photograph a 3 Year Old

Photographing pets, sports, and 3 year olds requires a similar set of skills.  Each involves a subject that is often out of your control to some degree.  I found a great background of backlit, colorful leaves, and put his favorite card in place to anchor him down.  Reflectors were placed in the sun to throw some great light on him. We had 3-4 minutes to shoot him before he was off and running around the yard again.
