When I shoot families and events, my goal is to have the photos evoke a vivid memory of the celebration. The end results I create tend to have a very narrative feel, with more candid shots than posed portraits. While traditional portraits are important, they alone do not recount the event the way that candid interactions do. For me, rather, it is the smallest details and the most fleeting interactions between people which evoke the strongest memories. For this reason, I tend to focus on capturing moments that are spontaneous and unplanned.
