Capturing families at their home, or even in their own bed like Samantha Kelly did here, are some of the best family photos. The kids feel at ease. They are home. Everyone relaxes. The family snuggles the way they always do in that bed. They kiss, they smile, they shine. Photographing families in their own home also increases the emotional pull of the images. It’s where their family lives. Where their kids are growing. Their memories are tied up in the environment.
I love the golden tones Samantha captured. Her use of light is spectacular and she shot this whole session on film, Kodak Ektar to be exact.
