Family Portrait near Belmar

Having a chance to include peoples life into a portrait sessions is incredible to me and photographing this family every couple of years gives me that chance. Kim is an amazing furniture designer while Kelly is a local Art Director and photographing for a creative families such as this one puts a lot of pressure on me because I have to deliver something worthy. Having a really big and heavy camera with over-sized lens helps a lot, because it makes me look like I know what I’m doing. To break the ice I start the session with something to do to make them think it has nothing to do with the portrait session, but that’s a perception I try to create; Everything is part of the session. Because my No1. rule of portrait photography is that people are a lot more comfortable in front of the camera when they think I’m not taking pictures which results in better pictures.
