Last month I got to try something new – an Easter shoot! A family I’ve photographed a few times asked me to come to their Easter party. At first I thought the request was a little unusual, but it ended up going really well. This is such a large family, that I imagine it’s rare to have everybody in the same place. So inviting me to take pictures on one of those occasions made a lot of sense.

I’ve mentioned this before, but candid photos tend to be my absolute favorites. Having the freedom to just skulk around in the background and capture natural moments rather than posing everyone can be really fun! Kiddos especially don’t like being posed, and that often shows through in photographs. Anyway, the resulting pictures have a more photojournalistic feel, which is something I love. Enjoy.
