Dad and Kids Candid Cape Coral Portraits

Why be boring in your portraits?  Candids are great! - Nikon D300 Tamron 17-50mm @ f/11 1/60th ISO 200 - Strobist:  SB-800 & SB-600 in shoot-through umbrellas

When having portraits made with your kids, why do things suddenly turn so serious?  Do you ever stand bolt upright next to your kids on non-portrait days?  That's why I like to make candids even when using my portable studio portrait setup in Cape Coral, Florida like I did for these photos.  These photos will make you smile and show your family's true personality and character more than standing side-by-side looking straight at the camera.  I happen to know the people in this post just a little as it turns out, as it's my brother and niece and nephew!

This is one way to get kids to look at the camera! - Nikon D300 Tamron 17-50mm @ f/11 1/60th ISO 200 - Strobist:  SB-800 and SB-600 in shoot-through umbrellas

These portraits were fun to make not just because they are my family too, but because I did not have to say anything to them about posing.  What you see in the photos just spontaneously happened and I had my camera ready to capture the results.  

These portraits were made in a small space in a living room.  I can bring my portable studio setup to your home and make candid portraits like these for you and your family too!  Do you prefer being outside?  I have even more experience shooting at parks and beaches!
