Brother and sister Melanie and Matthew Lawton believe it requires more than a creative eye and a pretty face to make art. They hold that the best photographic images occur through a relaxed collaboration between the subject and the camera. To establish this natural rapport, they guide individuals, families, and couples through on-location shoots, suggesting poses while listening to ideas. They encourage candid shots filled with movement and energy?such as newlyweds parading down an aisle of sparklers?while keeping their eyes open for opportunities to interact with on-location environments.
