Emotive Family Photography. My favorite moments
Updated: Dec 27, 2022
My headline for my entire website in the website listings is: Cara Hodge Photography - Emotive family & child photographer. Professional, award winning family & child photographer
That means I ONLY want to showcase the "Pictures" on my website that I feel an emotional reaction to. Particularly on the website Home page or landing page.
Those family portraits that I feel truly, madly deeply about.
After all, emotive means: arousing or able to arouse intense feeling.
So the last week or so, I looked back over my archive for my favorite family, child & baby portraits
Picking the pictures that "move me" most for my moving slider on the Home page!
Those pictures that most reflect the spirit of my family photography, including lifestyle photography.
Below are the pictures I have included in my slider.
I have favorite family & child portraits that include surprising moments. Moments of unexpected gesture & movement
Those moments that come by surprise!
My little niece suddenly jumping over a plant pot. A spot of light over my son's eye.
A mum swinging her baby son, and the expression of pure joy on his face.
My son playing with a garden hose and the water obscuring his face. Or spurting water from his mouth as he jumps into a pool. A young man tying a ribbon on to his girlfriend's wrist at a debs. A communion portrait Dublin with two sisters hugging on the beach. A beautiful young woman in a sunlit meadow, her straw hat lying near her in the meadow grass
These are authentic, natural moments that capture the spirit of family photography Dublin
This means seeking natural family photography, often documenting the ordinary moments as they unfold. This is also known as documentary family photography.
Or what I refer to as: Fly On The Wall!
I have tried to put a selection of older child, teenage & young adult in my slider as well.
Our children are always our babies no matter how old they are!
Of course my kids feature...because my kids have my heart & them some...
I have also featured some of my favorite client family pictures as I always aim to bring my lovely clients the passion I bring to my own family pictures.
Although black & white is my passion, I do love vibrant natural color too. I definitely wanted to include some life-affirming color on my pages.
