Nothing like an old beat up deserted location for a Soprano style family portrait session. Neal Urban Studio was so excited to photograph this family session. Even more exciting, they were bringing an old Cadillac. Location ideas where thrown out by the family, which was great. Neal Urban Portraits really likes when clients get involved and know what they want. They wanted it to be a dark and run down area. What better location than the old Summit Park Mall parking lot in Niagara Falls NY.
It was extremely cold that day. Luckily Neal Urban already had his game plan for the family. They were able to stay in their warm cars until it was their turn for photos. After doing the large group portrait, everyone got an individual set of photos. Neal Urban Photography wanted this image to be shot very dark. So exposure was low, but addition of studio lighting just to highlight this good looking guy.
Family sessions can be a lot of fun. Everyone thinks they have to be boring and just smile for the camera. Neal Urban Portraits has had some amazing family sessions with all kinds of crazy ideas! Another reason this family portrait session was so different, they knew they wanted a massive print of the family to hang in their home. They ended up going with a print that was 6 feet long! Neal Urban Collections also designed a photo box with individual and smaller group portraits!
