Everyone's different, every family has their own way to operate, to show their love. I love entering their world for an hour or so and try to get the essence of their love, their personality.
I played around with the grading on 2 of my recent shoots. For one I had a super large softbox and a couple of lights on the side. For the other one, an XL umbrella (absolutely beautiful), and a magnum dish on the front, as well as a honey comb at the back towards them.
Feel free to click on them to see the collages bigger.
