FAMILY RELIVE Session by Hong Ray

Our ‘Relive sessions’ are for people who treasure the precious time they spend together as a family and wish to have some meaningful portraits taken to remember the present stage of their lives.

The Story behind

As a photographer, I’ve been capturing life’s moments since the age of 18, witnessing countless family portraits along the way.

Yet, there was a time when family shoots felt uninspiring to me—a routine of posed smiles that lacked authenticity. Feeling drained by the monotony, I stepped away from it.

However, a year ago, I felt a pull to return to family photography, but with a renewed perspective. Embracing my passion for candid shots, I approached these sessions differently.

Drawing from the same approach I use in adventurous couple sessions, I created an atmosphere where families could relax, allowing genuine moments to unfold naturally. These sessions, aptly named “Relive Sessions,” are more than just photographs; they’re snapshots of love, laughter, and the beautiful connections that define family.

What is Family Relive Session

The “Relive sessions” by Hong Ray cater to families who hold dear their time spent together. These sessions steer clear of stiff, posed portraits where everyone is directed to look at the camera in a manner that may feel forced or overly glamorous.

Alongside capturing easygoing and relaxed group photos in various combinations, the focus lies heavily on candid and unposed shots. As your photographer, the aim is to create an atmosphere where you and your family feel at ease, enabling genuine interactions and meaningful candid moments to unfold.

Candid photographs that authentically reflect love, appreciation, and life will hold immense significance even 50 years down the line, in contrast to traditional portraits of yesteryears. Each candid shot captured during the session is intended to encapsulate special memories and meanings, evolving into cherished treasures long after the shoot concludes.
