Mexico City, Mexico 2011

I’m really enjoying spending time with my family but photographing them has proven to be a challenge. Everyone back home is used to me constantly snapping away so this hyper awareness of my camera is a foreign concept. I’m not sure how successful I will be at taking the family portraits that I had in mind but I have Martin Parr in the back of my head saying “You have to overcome the feeling that it isn’t the right time to take a photograph if you want to get away from this version of the perfect, harmonious family. I would argue that the more valuable document is the honest one.”
