p.1 #1 · {Zonis Family} Favorite Family Session Yet


I really enjoyed shooting with this family. It was extremely out of our way, and we were a bit worried when they asked us to shoot at the local park across the street from their house. It didn't sound terribly dynamic to me. Man were we wrong! These were shot in Green Lake Park, which is a massive park encompassing over 8 miles of beautiful lake.

It's never easy working with kids, we had to replace the faces on a few of them to get the whole family smiling, but I just loved the lighting and scenery in these. Please let me know what you think!

Great images, they'll be so pleased. The little fro dude is awesome!


Were these all naturally lit?

Very nice,

Love the expressions and the interactions you got here. Backgrounds are lovely, also. Love that reflection in 13. In 18, that looks like the nicest play wheel I've ever seen, normally they are these horrendous colors and all beat to death.

I'm curious why so much headroom on 3, 6 and 7. I'm all for unusual crops, but especially with 6 and 7 being more of the standard pose, the unusual crops just didn't feel quite right in these. I might also be tempted to crop a little off the right on 15, unless you still have some more space to the left on the original.

But really, those are nits and I'd be very happy if these were my shots!

Very NICE, Kudos are well deserved. These images do bring up something I have been thinking about. As good as these are, I think that all those white shirts over power the the faces and expressions of the people. Now I have done shoots where everyone wears white, and it is easy to tell your subjects to wear white, everyone has a white top.
So how to we tell people to dress, and coordinate outfits without wearing the classic white top? Would these images have suffered if they mixed and matched their attire?
Your thoughts on the subject...

Really nice set. Good warmth as well as a good mix of portraiture and more candid moments. 6 and 7 feel like you were trying to adhere to a rule of composition a bit needlessly, but that's about the only critique.

Very Very nice - they will be SUPER happy.

4 is may favorite.

Agree with other that the crops on 6 and 7 feel a bit too loose.
