Today I get to share Black and White Fine Art Family Portraits of the Washington family. I remember leaving this shoot feeling so happy, not just because the photos went perfectly but because they were all so jolly! I also enjoyed how lovely the two younger girls posed for me. Getting kids to warm up to a photographer can be a challenge for most. However, these two took to me and my camera quickly.

About my Black and White Fine Art Family Portraits

I started shooting this style of portraits while working on a special project for Arrow Senior Living. Since then, I refined my process and lighting style to what we have today. I’m currently offering these style of portraits for 2022, and then will likely retire it as I develop my next collection. If you want Black and White Fine Art Family Portraits, or any type of portraits for that matter, now is the time to reach out and schedule these. I’ll do family, kids, pets, headshots, or grandparent portraits.

The shoot itself couldn’t be more convenient for you. I come to you and set up my portable lighting system and backdrop system, which takes about 10-15 minutes. Then we shoot the fine art portraits, which takes about 30 minutes for a family of four. Finally, I break it all down and pack up, taking another 5-10 minutes. That means your time investment is usually less than an hour and you end up with incredible images of each family member to frame in your home.

Just imaging your child seeing this piece of art as an adult, or even showing it to their own kids one day! The thought of that warms my heart so much! I had one taken of me recently and felt so happy to have a photograph of myself that i actually loved and one that I would be happy for my children to have after I’m gone. Don’t you agree?
