As anyone who scrolls through my galleries will notice, most of my siblings are kids, so it was a nice change of pace to photograph adult siblings. I met Mary last year when I did a headshot for her LinkedIn profile. She contacted me before Christmas because she and her sisters wanted to surprise their parents with a portrait. They came into the studio and we had a quick 30 minute session that was a lot of fun.
While they were mainly interested in a more formal type of portrait, these three know how to get silly and I encouraged them to laugh and goof around a bit. It helps to make your subject feel more relaxed and in that way you get more genuine emotion captured in the image.
After our session the sisters agreed on the image they thought their parents would most love and they ordered a large print on metal as the Christmas present. I found out in the New Year that the parents were thrilled with the gift. I call that a success, happy clients, fun during the session and a great gift.
