Wow, what a fun afternoon with the Qureshi sisters and their kids! I’ve been itching to post these photos to the blog and now that we’ve presented the photos to the family, I’m happy to show you some of the highlights.
As we’ve been doing some work outside of the usual Indian weddings, I’ve found family life sessions to be so enjoyable. There’s a very different vibe with an entire family interacting with each other. And notice that I called these Life Sessions, not portraits…after all, the time we spend with these families is about capturing their lives together, not just about posing for a camera. So during these sessions, we do the usual group portraits, but most of the time is spent finding those family interactions which are so special and will be remembered forever.
Anyways, onto the photos! I know the family from Tayyiba’s wedding about 3 years ago. We covered many of their events and so it was a great chance to see the family again, especially how the kids have grown and to meet the newest member of the family, Tayyiba’s son, the little Z-Man!
Enjoy the photos!
We started off at the Ferry Building in San Francisco….
Talking about family interactions, this is one of those moments which are so common between a mother and her child. I decided to take this simple moment and make it a bit more special with some extra post-work, tying in textures & illustrations for something which highlights that special bond.
Little Inaaya was a bit shy when posing for her pictures, but she just loved showing me her dancing skills! So here’s a few shots I took while she showed me how to dance.
From the Embarcadero, we moved onto Baker Beach. The sunsets there just can’t be beat!
And this is an example of the unique montage enlargements we like to provide. It’s a way to take a wonderful photo and turn it into something really special that will look great in the family room, living room…anywhere you please!
