I first came across these gorgeous black and white photographs of the Kennedy family on Pinterest. I pinned them to my portrait inspiration board. They were originally pinned from the blog miss moss which is a fabulous lifestyle & design blog out of CapeTown, South Africa.
Mark Shaw was a well known fashion & celebrity photographer who photographed for LIFE magazine in the 1950′s & 1960′s. Many of his photographs are available for purchase as limited edition prints from the Andrew Wilder gallery.
Mark Shaw worked extensively as the “unofficial” family photographer to Jackie & John F. Kennedy throughout the 50′s & 60′s. How amazing to have your family documented by the same photographer over the years. I think it is perfect. You will really develop a relationship with your photographer enabling him or her to capture images of your family that are honest, beautiful and real.
As a portrait photographer, I have really loved working with many of my families year after year documenting events & portraits. It is my goal to continue photographing my clients families as they grow and provide them with inspiring images of their lives. I recently started offering lifestyle sessions which are a bit different than my regular portrait sessions with the hope to capture such timeless photographs of unstructured moments that capture the subtleties of daily living for my clients.
I look forward to documenting your family & your story.
Enjoy these lovely portraits of the Kennedy family by photographer Mark Shaw.
