Family Portraits at Furman – The Romosers

The Furman University Campus is one of my favorite places to do outdoor family portrait photography because of the variety of looks you can get in such a small area.  The Romoser family was sooooo fun to photograph, not just because they look great in pictures, but were excited to be there.  It didn’t hurt that a family of ducks with some little bitty furry (I know it’s not actually fur) ducklings showed up at the little pond right when we started the session.  The kids loved watching the ducks almost as much as the adults! Here are a few of our favorites from the Romoser’s family photo session. David & Kristina are wedding and family portrait photographers based in Downtown Greenville, SC.

Studio Family Portraits – Odom Family

Hillary and Robert welcome their son, Anderson into their family. Anderson is blessed to have two wonderful big sisters, Mackenzie and Sofia. It always makes me especially nervous photographing the family of another professional photographer! Thanks Hillary (Hillary Odom Photography) for choosing me to do this…it was such an honor! Clean, modern, family studio portraiture This is one of my favorite types of photo sessions because it’s all about the people and their relationships to each other.  No distracting backgrounds, no crazy props, just clean elegant and modern.  These types of portraits last a lifetime and look good displayed in any...

Shooting film again! Family vacation to the beach.

Shooting on film brings even more enjoyment to family portraits! For the longest time, I would try my best to leave my cameras at home when I went with the family on vacation.  I mean…taking pictures is work right?…when you do it for a living anyway.  I’d leave work at work and try to “travel light” (yeah right!) by not taking my camera gear with me.  The problem: I ended up shooting all my family pictures on my iPhone!  Not always terrible…after all, the best camera is the one you have with you.  The iPhone is great, but what if you really want pro quality?  Pulling out my old 35mm camera was a nice light-weight, easy-to-carry solution to get the great shots I want without all the bulk.  It was so much fun to be shooting film again (although I admit to making a couple of attempts at peeking at the LCD on the back of the camera…duh!) I’ve also started shooting on the Mamiya 645 medium format camera. To switch things up a little more, I recently purchased a medium format camera from a former client (creates negatives on film that are much larger than 35mm negs).  These cameras have a beautiful quality to them that I fell in love with right away.  I hadn’t used one since college…it was my favorite one to check out of the Media Arts equipment library for school photography projects.  It’s bulky (much like my Canon 5D MarkIIs), but because it’s different from what I’ve been doing on a regular basis for work, it becomes fun.  Here are some of the shots...
