Family photography in the iPhone age: Something's missing

Written by Mauricio Chandia

On one hand, smartphone cameras are a complete blessing. Moms and dads take more photos than ever, because it’s so easy.

We're all armed with iPhones. Within moments, we can capture and review dozens of photos and select only the best to keep in our digital photo albums.

However, few parents consider that something – or rather, someone – is missing from these cherished photographs: yourselves.

With the exception of a few selfies here and there, parents are so rarely seen in their Vancouver family photos. So many of us have become DIY family photographers, but a very important part of the family is missing from these pictures.

 

Why we still need Vancouver family photographers

I still believe wholeheartedly in professional family photography for Vancouver parents.

You – the mom or the dad – deserve to be in pictures with your kids. Because these are the photos you’ll cherish for years, even decades, and will display in frames around your house to show to guests, and to glance at as you hurry past.

As a Vancouver family photographer, I have nothing against iPhone photos of kids. It’s just that, every now and then, it’s important to get photos that bring the whole family together into one image that looks great and truly captures a moment in your family’s life together.

While iPhone photos are fun and easy, professional family portraits always turn out better, and are worth displaying at home. These are the photos we’ll look at time and again, as opposed to the quick snaps we save on our phones and rarely review.

Most importantly, though, professional family portraits make sure that everyone – even you – is part of the picture and looking their best, playing with the kids, grinning in a completely carefree way.

 

Photographing unfiltered emotion with your children

Some of the best photographs I’ve taken in my time as a Vancouver family photographer are candid shots of parents and their kids, simply being together. There’s a certain level of emotion that reveals itself when your family forgets there’s a camera nearby, and those real moments of everyday life together shine through. Those are the kinds of photos I love to capture for your family, but are so rare, even to the point of being impossible, when there’s an iPhone in the room, poised for a selfie.

Please look over my gallery of family photography taken in Vancouver, or the photos on my Facebook. I’d be honoured to have you call me at 778.858.1862 about organizing a photo shoot with your loved ones.

    Early birds get the worm, or in the case of these two adorable lovebirds, catch the best light. After exchanging emails on the overall mood of our Vancouver maternity session, we decided on the early morning hours, when coffee tastes the sweetest. These two required little to no direction. Being their happy, cute, loving, selves was as natural in front of the camera as breathing, for them. A gorgeous couple inside and out, it was an absolute pleasure capturing these memories for them. Hope to join the three of you next on your boat for some crab fishing soon!     …
