Photographing with Limited English :: German Family Photography

Before heading to Germany in March, I had set up a couple of family photography sessions in Mülheim an der Ruhr and in Dusseldorf. This little guy and his parents live in the same building as my brother and his girlfriend, Anika. The interesting part about photographing a family that don’t speak the same language, is trying to communicate your style of photography. Specifically your shooting style and how you interact with clients. Anika came along to introduce me to the family and to be an interpreter:-) Mom and dad both spoke some English and the rest was either communicated by Anika or using basic hand gestures and signals. The funny part of the whole session was that I really didn’t need any interpreting with the little guy…he seem to know EXACTLY what I needed from him:-) Family number two coming up shortly:-)Indianapolis-Family-Photography-_066Indianapolis-Family-Photography-Zionsville_001Indianapolis-Family-Photography-Zionsville_002Indianapolis-Family-Photography-Zionsville_003Indianapolis-Family-Photography-Zionsville_004Indianapolis-Family-Photography-Zionsville_005Indianapolis-Family-Photography-Zionsville_006Indianapolis-Family-Photography-Zionsville_007Indianapolis-Family-Photography-Zionsville_008Indianapolis-Family-Photography-Zionsville_009
