Photographed a family in Highlands in San Mateo over the holiday. The dad was sick, but we had to go ahead with a photo session since their daughters were going back to their work and school in Texas.
I asked them what they did for Christmas and they started telling me about places they went, smiling. They obviously had a lot of fun together. While they were talking and smiling, I kept photographing them.
Since their daughters are in other state, choosing which photos to print was a bit challenging for them. But in the end, each of them chose photos for prints.
After they chose photos, the mom told me a story about her son. He didn’t want photos taken at first. But after the session, he said he was glad he did. What he liked most was that I didn’t make them pose. I love to capture family’s closeness and also want them to relax, so I don’t like to pose them.
In this photo, the sisters were trying to kiss their brother on his cheek and he was trying to block them. I got a series of photos of this. They were all laughing and having fun. What a fun family!
