A few weeks ago, I get to know Russell and Jenny Sistine in the family portrait shoot for COMM316 Family Portrait shoot.

Jenny is graduating from BYU-Idaho, Rexburg, Idaho. She and her husband wanted to volunteer for the family portrait photoshoot. These guys are really fun together. I just love the love and the chemistry they have for each other as a family.

The Sistine is currently a family of three: Russell (the dad), Jenny (the mom), and Lexi (the littlest baby girl of the family). They are a new LDS/Mormon family living in Rexburg, Idaho. Megan Kelly did a blog post on the Sistine family she gave me an idea for black and white. I thought this black and white style suits the family very well. Lindsey Lefevre agrees that the black and white suits this family. So, here are their family portrait, black and white style!

This is one of the portraits of the whole Sistine family with a black and white filter. Douglas Phan take this family portrait of the Sistine with COMM316 Professional Imaging from BYU-Idaho, Rexburg, Eastern Idaho area. These guys are Latter-day Saints (LDS)/Mormon Family.

I also try a creative black and white filter, by adding someyellow into the highlights and some blues into the shadows. This add a “kick” into the image, which I thought looks awesome with the Sistine. Black and white is definitely made for this family.

There’s a photographer who did some great black and white family portrait that I really like. Here’s a link to his blog.
