Murray Park: Family Portraits

This was such a fun family shoot.  I love the opportunity I have to get to know someone in front of the camera.  Being in front of the camera gets people out of their comfort zone.  Yep here's a hint no one is completely comfortable in front of the camera including a photographer.  Every time I step foot in front of the lens rather than behind i have to go through a process of forcing myself to relax and be myself.  My best advice is to try to pretend the camera is not even there.  Sure I'm giving directions and staging the whole thing but don't worry it's just digital camera it's nothing to fear :)
