Let's talk about where it all began- My "First" Family Mini-Session

It's time! In the past two weeks, I shared all of my senior year portraits. It's time to share my family portraits.


As I was going through my old external hard drives, I realized that I don't do a lot of family sessions when I started. I kinda stumble into it by accident. My portrait photography journey started with quinceañeras. Family portraits never really caught my attention, until recently.


Let me ask you something - in one word, how would you describe your family? How does that look like? That's my goal. To capture that personally.


I'm a 100% introvert. Part of my job as a portrait photographer is to direct you and your family to open yourselves up and have a great time. It's hard! Well, it was when I started doing family sessions. Now, it's a fun challenge. Basically, I ask a lot of curious questions and eavesdrop on your family conversations. Sorry, not sorry. 😬


My "First" Family Mini-Session

Below is my "first" family mini-session. This family celebrated the boy's 15th birthday. Here's how you know it was my "first" family session, I never asked what the boy's name is. I don't even remember the mom's name. 🙈


That's changed! I promise. I might forget your kids' names if you have more than one but I won't forget yours. I might misspell it, but I'll remember your name.
