Fontainebleau Family Photographer
It had been a little while since I had been to the Fontainebleau. I’ve met many families and couples there over the years, usually taking photos by the beach. This particular day it was quite windy outside, especially by the beach. This family was more than happy to stay on the grounds of the Fontainebleau where it was less windy. The pool area was mostly empty and there was a huge space to work with to get different backdrops.
What I particularly enjoyed was photographing their two daughters. The oldest is wise beyond her years, and kept me intrigued talking about her passions and what she is pursuing in college. I look forward to seeing her conquer the world with her intelligence and ambition. Her younger sister is extremely mature and one of the most confident seven-year-old I’ve ever met. She struck her own poses and instead of giving me a cheesy smile, she would gaze seriously at the camera.
The grandparents joined us in the middle of the session and everyone was thrilled to see them. It was especially heartwarming to see the closeness that the grandchildren have with their grandparents. Documenting the relationships between people is what remains most important to me and what makes the photos more interesting and meaningful to the people in them.
