The Quesada Family
Lifestyle Session at Bill Baggs Cape State Park
Ok, I have something to admit. Working with close friends is so much harder for us than strangers. I know that doesn’t make sense. You know your friends, you know what their family is like and what makes them laugh. You have endless inside jokes that you can use to get a grin. You know the story of how they met and fell in love. You know what activities and cartoons their kids like and how to get genuine smiles from them. So creating the perfect fine art family lifestyle photo session should be easy. Right?
But that is also the problem- you know them. Really know them. You know their strengths and their love story. You know how hard they work for their family and the love that they share for each other. And since we know them so much better than the countless families that have shared their stories with us over cups of coffee, we set higher goals for ourselves.
I always start to think about my portrait classes in art school so many years ago – “how can you make the viewer understand this person?” “How can you portray this family so that people understand their bond?” I hope that when you see this session you see the endless amounts of love and happiness that this family shares.
The Quesada family was so excited to welcome baby Olivia into the world. They chose a beautiful location for their family photography session – Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. Thankfully, the afternoon light was beautiful and we were lucky enough to catch the golden hour light right before sunset. We captured a few traditional poses before moving on to a more relaxed lifestyle family session.
