In addition to charismatic opera singers, gorgeous brides, tattoo covered beauties, youthful high-schoolers, sweaty triathletes, and the occasional dog, we photograph kids too. They’re actually a nice cross between puppies and opera singers, so we’re reasonably qualified. And its a good thing we’re not big on the formal looking setups, because just like puppies, kids do NOT do this very well. The beauty is really in the dysfunction though, and we spend as much time laughing as we do trying to get multiple faces not to blink, squint, or drool. The excerpts below are from a family that we photographed in the studio and in their home over the course of a single session. Using the studio gives a nice predictable, light-controllable environment, and moving to a home allows us to shoot candidly, capture the natural surroundings of everyday life, and gives a great contrast to the studio work. These little ones were great. All shots were with a 70-200 2.8 and 50mm 1.4.
