Melissa + James's Family 2019 | Albuquerque Family Photographer

Candid Documentary Family Photo Session in ABQ with SMA Photography

How would you like to spend a Saturday with your family? What would you do with a morning together?

Melissa and James, in their 4th year of documentary-style family photos and films with me, chose to jump into one of the activities their kids love doing right now - roller skating.

We had the very best time skating all over the grounds of their school. (Well, they skated. I stuck to what I’m good at - photos and video of the fun!)

One new feature I brought to their family this year was the GoPro. In addition to the video footage I captured with my DSLR camera, I integrated GoPro footage the kids took as they skated. I have to say, I love the effect! When their youngest daughter takes her doll Blueberry for a skate (1:50 mark in the video), it makes my heart so happy. I just can’t stop smiling!

(Make sure to turn the sound ON as you watch. The kids’ voices make their film so much fun!)

After skating, their family transitioned to picking fruit - an activity I always love to capture, as it combines two things I love, food and family.

Home is the heart of every family, and my very favorite place to shoot. There is such value in having beautiful photos of your everyday life.

The routines and rituals that mark our days.

Every day, in all its normalcy, is special. The beauty inside each one is worth remembering.
