Alexander Family Lifestyle Portraits

I love it when I get a family who lets me capture them as they are. I find that if I let the children lead the way, I can create a really revealing look into the life of a family and the dynamics of their personalities as they play out in their interactions together. I also feel like family portraits are a great way to spend an afternoon together - it's one of the few times when it's really truly about just making time for each other, and I feel so honored when I'm the one who gets to capture that event.

My time with the Alexander family started off with just the kids- exploring the back yard and learning what they loved about this place they called home.

It was really fun to see how the dynamic changed when the parents came out to play. While a lot of parents feel slightly embarrassed when kids start to "act out" - I love it because it really reflects a child's personality. Years from now, when the kids have kids, there will be photos to remind them of what they were like. ;-)

We always have to get at least ONE standard portrait of the family.

These two are my favorites... probably because of my love of trees. ;-)

And this image was the family favorite- I'm just dying to see how the 20"x30" canvas looks on their walls!!
