But I guess the question really is what are they or you looking to create?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Right now things are wide open. Their attitude is "it's no big deal, nothing fussy, whatever you want".
But nothing fussy doesn't have to mean no forethought to wardrobe, etc. It means they're informal people (with very good taste) who want direction and leadership from me.
I am still in the brainstorming phase and am largely looking for visuals to get my juices flowing. A quick google search for "family portraits" does not suffice. So if any of you follow the portrait scene already and have some inspirational galleries bookmarked, sharing them could really help stimulate my creativity.
Sorry I can't give better direction than that right now, it's wide open.
