The energy that develops during a family portrait can be something really magical. A few weeks ago, the Nee family came in to get portraits taken. The session starts slowly as we get used to each other, but quickly it changed to laughing and having a great time.

 

 

It was then that I wanted to do something really fun, something that would push my own creative envelope. I decided to “manufacture”  a portrait of the kids together. I had them each pose with a piece of white wood to get the hands and posing accurate. I created three individual portraits and carefully blended all of the elements together into one cohesive group portrait. My idea was to make it like they were looking down at us through a hole in the ceiling. I think it turned out pretty well, what do you think?
