Variety Show (Utah Family Photography)






Usually, when I photograph a family, I strive to achieve that one great image that will go on the wall, and be enjoyed for generations to come. There are usually many factors that try to get in the way of this: weather, lighting, cranky kids, hungry parents, etc. When this Dad booked a session with me, and informed me that they have six kids ranging in age from 2 to 17, I was prepared for a very difficult session. Boy was I over-prepared! This was one of the easiest families I've ever photographed. Everyone was on board, and in good spirits, and so fun to work with. I also had some amazing light this evening, which left me with no obstacles except my puzzle-solving skills which weren't bad that evening either. The result was we got some incredible variety, and several gorgeous family portraits. Good luck choosing, A&K!

What a gorgeous location, and a super-duper gorgeous family. I stared at that first picture for a while, thinking, "Wow, what an amazing father, to take care of these 7 kids himself." I was tearing up, seriously...until I finally decided that one of those darling girls might be old enough to be the mother. (I hope she takes that as a compliment!)

Very impresive! I have had these type of photos done for my family and these are much better. I like the 3rd one down. Very nice!

I like the third photo the best. It was close enough to see the faces clearly. I can see that one hanging in the living room for a while. This is an excellent portrait/photo.

I like the fourth one second best. Good lighting and a good camera angle, just too far away and the family looks a little separated. The three kids on the right could be closer.

I would choose the third picture from the top as first choice and the top picture as second choice.

I would choose the 3rd picture as my favorite just because it is a closer up picture. I like the first pic second best, and maybe if you zoomed in on it I might like it better as i think some of the facial expressions in the first one maybe a little more relaxed.

It is hard to make a choice they are all so good. This is a very photogenic family. The second one would be my choice if I were to have it on my wall, but I really liked the third one best.
