Family photography at Murray Park
Thank you to the Hodgson Family for allowing us to show off their beautiful family portrait.
Barrus Photography has been taking family portraits for over thirty years. We feel
blessed to be trusted with such with such an important event. We take family portraiture very seriously. We know for some families a family portrait only happens a few times in a lifetime. We know we have to get the family portrait right the first time every time.
One of the ways we we make family portraits perfect every time is with head swaps. It’s very difficult to get 10 to 40 people looking their best in one shot. Don’t worry with head swaps (switching heads from one pose to the next in photoshop), we can get everyone looking their best in one family portrait.
We can even get younger and skinner in family portraits done at Barrus Photography
Yes it matters who you choose for you next family portrait. We hope it will be

Thanks to the Simmons family for choosing Barrus Potography for their family Photography
The Simmons family is Awesome! They not only look great but the are great. Four son’smarried and eight beautiful grand children. Lainy and I have our own six grandchildren so we know there is nothing better. As you can see the Simmons choose to be dressy for their outdoor family portrait at Murray Park. Some may think dressy doesn’t work outside. I think dress can work very well outside especially at a well groomed park like Murray Park.
So glad I choose family photography as my profession. I get to spend time with amazing people in the beautiful outdoors. I enjoy playing with other people’s grand kids almost as much as I enjoy playing with my own grand kids. I can be pretty silly to get their attention for the best possible family picture.
Please look at the following link to see some amazing examples of family photography I’ve done over the years at Barrus Photography.

Thanks to the Updike family for letting us show off their beautiful family portrait and for their friendship.
This is a special family because they live in our neighborhood and because they are awesome people. They are also awesome because Jenny Updike is our book keeper extraordinaire. So if you are looking for a great book keeper give her a call. I’m not exactly an organized person and she is great at helping me put our various book keeping pieces back together again.
Murray Park is a great place to take family portraits. Their are awesome bridges, and beautiful river, and a great pond. Murray park has been around for many many years so the trees are gigantic. This means a lot of great shade for family portraits. Family portraits are better in the shade. The soft light in shade is very flattering light. We all look better in the shade. Shade for family portrait is especially important in July when it is 100 degrees outside. Don’t forget to choose Barrus Photograpy for your next family portrait. We know how to make you and yours look great in your next family portrait.

Steve’s favorite lens for family pictures is his cannon 70-200mm lens. This is a great family pictures lens because he can quickly go from a full length shot to a close up head shot. It’s also a great lens for family pictures because with the 200mm focal length he can get those beautiful background out of focus pictures. This effect gives his family pictures almost a three dimensional look. This is a look that the normal eye cannot see. Steve likes to present to the viewer a view of the world that he or she is not ever seen before. Another way to create this look in family pictures is by using the lowest possible aperture the lens has to offer. Steve’s second favorite lens for family pictures is his 35mm wide angle lens. He likes this lens for family pictures for the same reason he likes the 200mm lens. It also gives the viewer a look at the world in a way that the normal eye cannot see. The 35mm lens of course gives steve’s family pictures a wide look, this is a very fun perspective especially when shooting from a high angel. Steve loves to shoot family pictures from very high and very low angles. Family pictures shots taken from ground level are very fun and exciting. It especially makes men look strong and powerful. Family pictures shots taken from a very high angel are also extremely interesting.
Action family pictures are also really fun to take and very exciting to see. Steve uses a very fast shutter speed to stop the action in his family pictures. The emotion that can be captures is killer cool. Little snap shots of life can be captures in family pictures with action shots. Laughing, jumping, running and walking are all action ideas that Steve tries to capture with every shoot.
Post production work on family pictures is what steve likes to call the second creation. Taking the family picture is the first creation. The most important and first step in post-production is color correction. Steve shoots raw family photography images not jpgs because a raw file is almost like a negative. It allows you to adjust the exposure and color balance post-production. After the photographs are properly color corrected then the fun begins. With photoshop there is a endless amount of manipulation that can be done on family pictures. One of the most popular manipulations done on famiy picturess is make me skinnier. Almost everyone wants to be a bit skinnier. Get rid of my double chin is also very popular. The most common retouching that is done on family pictures is blemishes removal and shine reduction. Fly away hairs can also be taken care of quite easily. Sometimes we fix clothing, for example when someone does not wear the right color shirt we can change the color of the shirt to match with the rest of the people in the photograph. Retouch is only done at Barrus photography studio in Utah when we make the family photography prints. When you own your own images and make your own prints there will be no retouching done on the images. That is why we recommend that even if you own your images you should have the most important family pictures printed by Barrus photography
