Best Newborn Photographer in Vancouver, WA.Creating family portraits is really an art. First you have to get everyone comfprtable with the camera and explain what is going on. I have to admit, my 20 years as a reading teacher comes in handy when working with families. I know how to be kind and direct and model what is eexpected. This family hired me to create wall groupings for their home. Rebekah contacted me and expressed an interest in having her siblings and parents in a photo shoot. This photo was taken when the sky was high in the sky. I positioned the sun behind them so it would act as hairlight. It was hot and I think everyone was feeling the heat. I worked quickky to create a good composition and then took the shot. I do really like the vibrancy in this photo! TKeywords: arch (6), family (111), st louis (6). 1/1600; f/2.5; ISO 64; 85.0 mm.
