Jeanette and Jeff made a pair of family portraits on Saturday and, as you'll see in the photos, they achieved a similar feeling in each photo. When making family portraits in the studio, JFP focuses on (no pun intended -- LOL) strong composition and clean, flattering lighting.
The goal is to make a picture that will have a bit of a classic vibe to it, and that will always remind the family of that particular sliver in time. We use stools, apple crates, etc., to bring everyone's heads together a bit, but we also work to keep everyone in the proper height order (we do not want, for example, a shorter sibling to look taller in a family photo). And we use a lighting technique that keeps the emphasis on the people and not the photographers.
Did you know that Jeff and Jeanette, the husband-wife team that make up JFP, have a camera to thank for their marriage? Jeff was working as a photographer and Jeanette was working as a model ... The rest is, as they say, history!
