A few weeks ago, I had the (incredible) opportunity to shoot family films alongside family photographer Yan Palmer in the Pacific Northwest. Yan did all of the intricate work of directing and posing the family while I mostly just stood by, smiling foolishly, and documented the beauty that happened through video. This session was on a rooftop in downtown Portland, Oregon, swathed in the blueviolet light of the moon. Jenna and her three kids were kinetic, shining. I chased the littlest all over and fell hard into the reverie of stillness her middle son created. I’m still in awe of this quick hour of beauty I had the privilege of documenting.
