cindy, lindsay + charlie :: trout lake family photos
Photography may be a highly visual art, but like any other art form, it’s not all about the aesthetics—it’s about telling a story. This is particularly true when photographing people as your subjects. Capturing authentic emotions and feelings in an image is key to creating beautiful, truly compelling images that speak to your audience on a more personal level.
I met with Cindy, Lindsay and their new puppy Charlie on the longest day of the year for an awesome couple/family shoot in their beautiful home and garden, and in and around Trout Lake, their new neighborhood. We had so much fun hanging out while Charlie played (like the puppy she is), meeting other dog owners, and capturing the three of them, as they are!
There are many different emotions that can be depicted in an image. In all of our photographs, we strive to highlight joy, happiness, sorrow, despair, and love, although the interpretation can differ depending on the viewer. The challenge in capturing an emotion, however, is in making it appear genuine as the custom pet portrait we made.
