Here’s an image that will be hanging in the Lawfield home as a 40×30 canvas!

We had a family of 12 in the studio last week for some high-key portraits. ”What is ‘high-key’?” you ask. High-key essentially means that the key tone of the image is high, so usually high key images tend to focus on a lot of white. High-key is a great technique for family portraits as it draws the viewer’s attention directly to the faces of the subjects. But as you can see from these images with the Sharp, Clifton and Elliott families, planning in the clothing department is a huge component, and this family nailed it.
At the risk of tooting my own horn, another key to success with this type of family portrait is lighting and posing. You can’t just slap a bunch of people in front of a white bed sheet and expect to get this look. You have to know how to light the subjects separately from the backdrop and most importantly, how to pose the group in the most appealing, symmetrical and flattering way (and it doesn’t hurt to have a few laughs along the way as high-key images generally have a feeling of brightness and happiness).
Family portraits are so much more than just a picture on your wall. They are an heirloom. A well thought out, and well planned family portrait session will capture your family for a moment in time and preserve it for generations to come.
If you’d like to schedule your own family portrait session (high-key, low-key, outdoors, or even funky/non-traditional), contact our studio to set up an appointment.
This is one of my bestest friends from High School, Cori Wilson. She and her husband, Justin are expecting their second child (a little girl) in a month and so they came over with their adorable son, Xavier to get some maternity pictures.
Thanks Cori and Justin. It was so great to spend some time with the two of you this evening! Rachel and I couldn’t be more happy for you. Here’s to a safe delivery and a beautifully healthy little girl.
My cousin, Kevin and his wife JoAnna are in this weekend from Oklahoma and we did quick photo shoot with them and their 16-month old, Melanie this morning.
Below are a few favorites from their session. (I hope the first picture in this sequence isn’t foretelling my son’s future attempts to pick up the ladies).
And here are a few more of the the Burlison’s
This was the 2nd of two family sessions that we shot on Saturday. It was early afternoon and the sun was blaring high in the sky. This would typically be a nightmare scenario for most photographers (I know it would have been a nightmare for me when I first started shooting). But . . . if you learn how to harness the sun and use it to your advantage as a photographer, you can really create some unique images. Here are a few shots that we took of Julie Lohr and her family (John, Luke and Sasha).
