After my wife and I hired a family photographer year to document us for a few hours, I decided I wanted to start offering the same thing. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what was going to come from just candid photos of us hanging out as a family, but we put all our trust in our photographer. Before even seeing our photos, I decided I wanted to offer documentary family sessions because of the fun experience we had. Seeing the photos in print was even better.
I photographed the Knudson’s wedding, so we already had worked together. I was so stoked to hear that they wanted to be the first family for my documentary family sessions I’m offering. We hung out for a few hours and I tagged along while they did things they normally do as a family. That’s it. I approached it in the same way I do weddings.
I’m so happy and excited to be offering these sessions to families who don’t want the boring smile-at-the-camera photos.
In The Couple’s Words:
“When your wedding photographer becomes your family photographer! Anthony did such a great job at our wedding that when we heard he was doing family photos, we had to jump on this opportunity. The family photo session was incredible. We spent a few hours doing some of our favorite things. Like, going to our favorite local coffee shop, playground, pizza joint and art district. Where Anthony followed us along taking pictures of happy and honest moments of our family, just being us. I have said this before, especially for our wedding day, Anthony is like a NINJA. There are photos that came out incredible, where we don’t recall Anthony being there. I love that! He makes you feel comfortable, isn’t in your face, and allows you to enjoy your time. This method helps avoid forced interactions, especially with a little one and an awkward husband lol. I will most definitely be documenting more of these family moments with Anthony. Thank you again for continuing to be our photo ninja!”
