Every year I drive out to the Schaap families house near their dairy and shoot a family session. Every year I am blessed by their generosity, kindness and sincere friendship. One of the coolest parts of my job is watching families grow up. Watching their kids go from a little six month old baby to a nine year old. My job as a portrait photographer is to document these growing families and then give them a product to help store these memories. One of those products is a lookbook. It is a hand-crafted 8.5x11 coffee table book with 30 pages and various linen cover color options. I design each lookbook to fit each session. I photograph these family sessions in various angles and groupings with the idea that a lookbook would be a final product. My most favorite pose are close-up connections bewtween the family. For example, mom hugging on her daughter while walking down the dairy road, or big brother putting his arm around his little sister. Sweet moments.Here is a peek into the Schaap families lookbook.
