engaging or oblivious…

The weather these last few days reminded me of this shoot on a beautiful sunny morning last year in a gorgeous garden in Carlow.

I loved meeting this family and even got marketing advice from my talented clients.  Thanks again guys!

Reviewing the images, I started considering my reaction to them and I wonder if yours is the same.  Do you like images where the people are engaging with the camera by looking directly at it, or do you prefer images where we capture the subjects engrossed in their activity, where those in the image are oblivious to the camera? 

So for images of your own family which type of image do you like best, images where your family is engaging with the camera, or those where they are oblivious of it?
