Fashion Family Portraiture
I chatted with Susan for a couple of months. Her family was going to take a trip and wanted a highlight of their time together to be a family photoshoot. The point of our conversation was to get to know each other and to hammer out the details for our portrait session. Though, after a productive thread of communication, I felt like Susan was more of a friend than a client.
Reading between the lines. I realized that the family from Kuala Lumpur did not want flowery scenery or a cityscape for a background. They didn't wish to be led through gardens or stroll by a waterway making cheesy faces at each other. It was obvious to me that the Hengs wanted portraits, not travel photos.
I could gather from our conversations that, though they were young, Susan and her siblings were refined. I wanted to give this young family a set of photographs that showed just how put together they seemed. A fashion inspired photoshoot would not only be classy, but would also accentuate the family's taste and demeanor.
When our session date arrived, I was thrilled to finally meet the Hengs. I could tell immediately that I was right. The family has a tremendous amount of style and class. Now the Heng family has the portraits to prove it.
