Kellys Family Shoot

Pete and Tricia finally took me up on the family shoot that I offered a long while back. They wanted a couple of simple family portraits, one on the tree house that their son built, and one at their front lawn.


The tree house was a bit of a challenge. The light stand wasn’t tall enough to at least get a side lighting as you can see on this test shot.


It was quickly solved when Pete pulled out a patio table from under the house. It raised the light stand for another 3 feet giving me a nice side light.


After getting the traditional family pose, I suggested a few fun shots like this one.


Then there was a shot I took where the kids would remain on the tree house and mom and dad would pose below. (Note: the following photo is unedited)


During post processing, I realized I had two pictures within that one image. I had about three versions of these so I cropped and re-sized the versions that I liked.

The late afternoon sun was a blessing as it gave me the opportunity to use it as a nice warm side light.

Sometimes my favorite moments are during test shots because they are more candid in nature.


And some even end up being keepers!
