It was a pleasure to shoot the McComas family. The mother of these two wonderful kiddos, Lauren, is a good friend of mine and is the artistic director of SALT Performing Arts in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania. She brought her extended family in to my studio in Chestnut Hill for a family portrait session. We captured group family portraits, individual portraits, and several different groupings to capture a wide array of different images. In this image, we had a dance party in my studio. It was a ton of fun for the kids and resulted in many natural, dynamic children portraits with lots of energy. With this type of tactic, one of the challenges is to capture the kids in a flattering way with their arms and heads in the right position, matched to a lively expression with eye contact with the camera. Each of the kids has a unique personality. Lauren’s daughter is an old soul with a knack for performance and she has an immense amount of confidence for her age. Lauren’s son is high-energy and is highly curious. This image was shot with natural light against a white V-flat for a contemporary family portrait look. It almost looks like a Gap ad!
We also snuck in some business headshots for Lauren’s brother-in while we were at it. He is the co-owner of Element Risk Management in West Chester, Pennsylvania. They help consumers and businesses get insurance quotes that meet their budgets and provide the appropriate amount of coverage. I got my auto and business insurance through them and could not have had a better experience!
