The most common question we’re asked when families are preparing for their portraits is “What Do I Wear”? Because we know that the best pictures happen when everyone is comfortable and relaxed, the correct clothing choices are an important part of the pre-portrait planning process.  Clothing choices also should reflect the uniqueness of your family. We’ve created an exclusive “What To Wear” guide for your family portrait session. Simply download the complete PDF guide for comprehensive tips, information and advice on clothing for your family portrait. Click on the link and you’ll go to my Family portrait page where you can download the What to Wear guide for free.

Outdoor Family Portrait Photography With The Family Dogs

Here is the last outdoor family portrait I have scheduled for this year. I did the photography for this family close to downtown Dayton along the Great Miami river. They brought their two energetic dogs who really loved the river bank. It’s a little late in the year and the leaves were gone but it’s still a beautiful setting. I had to use all my experience to get the dogs attention. Maybe someone will call for a family portrait in the snow this winter. Here at Cleary Creative Photography we always work with clients to come up exactly the photograph they desire. Dan has been creative family portraits in the Miami Valley area for over 28 years.

Young Family Portrait

Professional photographers are being challenged to post black & white images for consecutive 5 days. Here’s my first images. This is a young family that came in for baby and family portraits. They had a 3 month old and a 2 year old. Any professional photographer can tell you how challenging photographing a 2 year old can be. So I posed the Mom, Dad and baby, I have a one foot tall box that gets used for all sorts of things. I asked the little boy who was running around the studio to jump up on the box and look at his brother. I made three exposures and this one came out perfect. The Mom & Dad liked it so much that the purchased a 16×20 framed print. What a blessing to have this image displayed in their house for a long time to come.Young family holding 3 month old baby with baby brother looking on

Aferican American family portrait

How important is a family portrait?

I received a phone call like many I have had. “Hi, I would like to find out about a family portrait”. I like to find out as much information as possible about the family before they come in for a portraits. Who am I photographing? What are everyone’s age? Are there little kids, grandparents? The woman who called said her mother had breast cancer and she wanted a family portrait while she still felt good enough to come in. I was amazed how good the grandmother looked and how much love this family had for each other. We should all be this lucky to have a loving, extended family. Two sisters, with their children and their parents. I delivered the portraits as quickly as possible because I knew the Grandmother wasn’t doing well. When my client picked up the portraits she told me her mother was at Hospice and I felt very sad. Later that day she called me crying because she showed the portraits to her mother and everyone at hospice cried they looked so good. How important  is a family portrait? These portraits are priceless. These are the kind of clients I love and these are the kind of families I love to work with.
