Gorete Ferreira: family of seven

The miracle of this family shoot by Gorete Ferreira is not that the images are so gorgeous or that the light is perfect or the focus and composition so spot on. The miracle is that Gorete somehow shot a family of 7 and made them look calm, happy, and loving without showing any of the chaos that is ever present in large families (at least in mine!).

I’m betting just about anything that one or more of these fantastic photos are this family’s holiday card.

Alisa Greig: family fun in a field

I may be a bit biased on this post. Alisa Greig is my friend and fellow photographer here in Hawaii. When I’m super lucky, I can actually get her to shoot with me at weddings.  She shot another Hawaii film photographer, Floyd Fajardo, and his rad little family. She used both her own Mamiya 645 af and Floyd’s Contax 645 as well as the Canon 1v. Flowers provided by Flowergirls.

Ash Imagery: family on Mt Jo in the Adirondacks

Ash Imagery has a way with his camera. The light, the framing, the technique apparent in these gorgeous images of a family on a hike is amazing.  I love the way the scenery is such a large part of the photos but still the connection inside the family is felt.
