What is it that makes documentary photography so good for your family?
When most people think of family photography it is more often a family portrait that comes to mind. The photograph for the wall where everyone is stood facing the camera and smiling. However does this really reflect what your family is like? Do the kids all smile at the same time? Do they all stand around posing? Possibly not.
If all you had where photographs of perfect scenes what would your memories conjure up in years to come? Would it be of photography sessions or how life really was?
I had a wonderful photography session with a family just recently who understood how important documentary photography was. They knew that their kids were active and full of imagination. They knew that a photograph of them just stood around facing the camera would be wrong. It wouldn’t reflect who they really were.
Check out some of the photographs as we played hide and seek, with a twist. The ‘twist’ it was something that I sometimes do on sessions. I gave the kids a camera. The game was hide and seek but you had to find people by looking through the camera and then taking a photo of them.
Oh and by the way hiding in or behind a greenhouse doesn’t work as you will see.
