The people in your family are the people you are most comfortable with. Your family portrait should reflect that. You know and love everything about each other. As the kids grow up, the relationship changes. Your son goes from wanting to marry mommy to not wanting her to kiss him in front of his friends. Your daughter, who always thought daddy was so funny, is now embarrassed by him. Delight in the natural progression of it all. It comes full circle. My Dad is hilarious once again. Plan to sit in for a few shots with your children and allow me to capture the dynamics, interaction and bond that your family shares. The best pictures are not necessarily those in which everyone is looking at the camera and smiling, but those that capture the personality and spirit of the subjects and their relationship to each other.
