Another Great Family Shoot with a Cinematic Look!

I am very behind in getting postings up here!  We have been busy, busy, busy!  So busy that we haven’t even posted much to social media or on this website/blog.  I am prepping for my first wedding . I’m confident the photographs are going to be beautiful, but of course a bit nervous, a family shoot and mini sessions… All this upcoming weekend! Here’s a look at a session I did last fall!

I love how modern and cinematic these photos turned out! This was the style we set out to achieve!

This was another great family that came to visit me!  We were going for a little bit of an artsy feel, mixed with a cinema film look.  As you can see, this is what transpired and think the style we were set out to achieve, went well.  I used a 50mm 1.8 lens and a cinema 85mm 1.4 aspherical lens and shot wide open in some of these shots.  We wanted a little bit of bokeh (the blurry background effect that is done in camera).  If you look at my work, I love bokeh!!! I feel that it puts more emphasis on your subject.  Sometimes, I look shooting wide open, sometimes I don’t and like my photos a little more sharp and I’ll go up a few stops in that case!

The adorable kids!

A beautiful movie star family!

This family was wonderful from start to finish.  They knew exactly what they wanted and I was happy to deliver it to them!  We started at our studio here in South Jersey and then went to out to one of my secret locations in the area. They came all the way from Burlington County just to see me.  I felt truly special that they came all this way, just to see me!  Hope you enjoyed these movie-inspired photos!

Happy Shooting, my friends and see you again, real soon!
