When the members of a family shoot span 4 generations, it becomes a clan photo shoot. 🙂 Seriously, this is much less a family shoot in that I’m not able to say, “Okay, now try this.” or “Let’s play this.” or “You guys just do your thing while I back up over here and snap away.” No, when a new shot means jumbling up over a dozen people and rearranging to make all faces visible, it takes on new creativity then the average family shoot. I prepared for this shoot with a few ideas of my own, and the Kelleher family had their list of desired shots, and we fired them off, one after another. It took on a little bit more of the “formal” pictures at a wedding. But maybe a little more relaxed then the “Hurry up, 200 people are waiting for us” setting of a wedding. 😀 This clan put on some charming smiles, but if you know this family, you know a chuckle (in the very least) is never far off, so there is much fun to be had in their family portraits, as well. It was a fun challenge and change-up from my average shoot to capture 4 generations of the Kelleher family… So enjoyed capturing the love of seasoned, time-weathered hands holding each other to plump baby hands only knowing the joy of playing in dirt and throwing food. Thanks for the honor of capturing your beautiful family, Kellehers!
