Winning Images from the Family Photo Challenge

Family Photo

"I love when families feel relaxed and like they are just spending time with each other rather than feeling like they are in a photo session.  These unposed sessions allow for so much natural connection and love to shine through the images. 

What a blessing it is to be able to watch a sunset together.  Every time I go through a gallery, there is always that one that reminds me of how lucky we are just to have our loved ones within arms reach.  Like a beautiful sunset that occurs daily, our families are easy to take for granted.  Isn't it amazing that something so MAGNIFICENT can be disguised as something so expected and routine?  Capturing the heart of the moment by encouraging a family to just enjoy each other's company while I photograph, is always my goal".

Winning images were taken by the talented Arlene Garcia using the Pretty Film Bohemian Collection.
