Connecticut Family Photographer - Anna Holden

Hey there! Anna here! Are you looking for family photos that are DIFFERENT from all the rest? Are you tired and just plain bored with the same old, same old when it comes to family photo sessions? Done with worrying that you’re going to be 15 minutes late and miss your entire session? Are you over the headaches associated with family portraiture? Making everyone cooperate and smile until their lips quiver uncontrollably? Wanna jump OFF the bandwagon??!! Documentary family photography may be just what you need!! I create ARTWORK from your every. freaking. day. Just your typical, run-of-the-mill, crazy a*s day. Seriously. No posing, just living! It’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s REAL. No fake bullsh*t. No awkward smiles. My favorite? No dressing up! Funny story — I hired a documentary family photographer for our vacation with extended family at the beach in CA this year. Yeah, my 5 year old son legit wore his pajamas the entire time we were at the beach... so did my mom?! And you know what? I treasure those pictures. Those are the kinda memories I want to look back on. The kind of memories I want to blow up and hang on my walls and fill our family photo albums with. Why? Because family photojournalists (another term for documentary family photographers) capture photos that highlight your family members’ unique personalities and showcase the beauty and nuances of the many relationships within your family, including beloved pets. Looking back through your photos from a day-in-the-life session allow you to relive that day with astonishing emotion and detail, even years later. This is why ALL my sessions include credit toward heirloom quality print products of YOUR choice... so you can relive and pass down albums and prints from your happiest days (not just outdated and possibly corrupt digital files). Sound interesting??!! If you want to talk more about what I can do for you, feel free to reach out so we can schedule a call or meetup!

San Francisco family photography by Anthony Thornton, of California

After growing up with drum sticks in my hands, I went to music school and earned a B.A. in jazz drumming. But in 2008 while studying abroad in Amsterdam, I discovered a love for photography. And in 2010 my focus completely shifted from music to image-making. To learn this new craft, I studied (and continue to!) the masters and assisted as many photographers as possible. While freelancing for publications in Colorado I eventually became a staff photographer for the Vail Daily, where my images were also published in other outlets including The New York Times and Food & Wine Magazine. Today, I'm a beardless freelancer living in San Francisco and specialize in making people look and feel like themselves.

California and San Francisco are home to family photojournalist Douglas Despres

I love photographing family energy... been doing it in the documentary feel for 17 years. Family sessions are one of the most cherished things for my camera. As proof, despite nearly two decades as a pro, and being published from music albums to museums, my most cherished honor in the medium is an image of my late Uncle Ron, on the front cover of his funeral program. It captures a wily smirk and was made at a large family gathering one sunny Summer day in New Hampshire. It meant the world to be surprised with that. The natural moments of connection of your family, through big open hearts, is what I'm after. It's a mix of documentary, lifestyle and fine art. It's real. It's slow and soft or loud and crazy... it's everything. The goal is to become one of your family photographers through life, one session at a time. Often we'll put something physical that you already share together as a family. Could be cooking. Could be basketball or surfing or soccer or skiing. You enjoy, and I'll document the magic. For more of my history and accolades, please head on over to my website.
