Case in point for the Claridy Family photo shoot....
Sam, their dog is very much a part of this family.
I wanted her view of a family portrait. And I love it....
I love the way the parents are looking at on another in this next shot.
I also have a weakness for this kind of light.
Camera's these days are created to avoid and weed out this light.
I work hard to capture it.
It lends to a fairytale story...
I have a shot of my children like this that I call "Run towards the light"
I just love it.
So much, I wanted to recreate it for the Claridy children....
This picture has a story behind it. Sean likes to give one of those unnatural smiles.
Ones that many boys his age give.
I was determined to break it.
Well, I gave him an unexpected punch in the stomach (no....not hard)
and it got him to give a natural laugh.
Whatever works...right moms?
