I spent a glorious fall morning with the Sinclair family running around their massive yard with their darling boys. I have to admit that I have shied away from family sessions in the past due to the the unpredictable nature of young kids, I never wanted to disappoint clients by not delivering the perfectly posed family portrait. What I have come to understand is that there is no such thing as the perfect family nor the perfect family portrait. I prefer to document real families as they are...messy, happy, pouty, loud, quiet, and playful! I would much rather see a kid's quarks and personality reflected an image than a forced grin, what do you prefer?
