Campbell Family Portraits, 22 Sep 12 | Rochester NY Family Photojournalism Portraits

Friends of Erin, the Campbells commissioned me to take some portraits of their young family for Matthew and Marks' birthday(s) out in Buffalo. Starting with some cake for Matthew with her visiting from out of town family, they had fun eating the sweet food (it was Matthew's first time), then played some hockey. We then headed down the street to Rolly Pollies, a fun gymnastics gym for kids, and Mark's 3rd birthday party. I believe that families are best documented in a photojournalistic manner- it is a far more authentic representation of your family and their interactions. Among my own photos, the ones that have lasting value to me are the ones documented naturally, instead of posed.

Fun with the part hats

Matthew is skeptical of cake.... but quickly grew to like it (and had a 2nd piece)

Dad, grandpa and Mark work in some hockey

Time to hit the road


The other guests had fun too :)

Mark loves running down the tumble trampoline

Thank you for letting me document a day in your family's life.
