this family is the second family i photographed professionally. i met them on a whim while they were pregnant with their little man and we’ve been fast friends ever since. i’ve photographed them several times over the years. and i always look forward to our sessions together.
this family loves city park. it is their special place so it was easy to select our photo shoot location this year. the weather, unfortunately, was not as easy to handle. it was bone chilling cold, windy and the light was powerful and, quite honestly, funky fun. i was nervous as the wind picked up but these guys–not a complaint. they frolicked, danced and interacted as if it were a warm sunny day. they were, in fact, dancing in their happiness and love as a family. at times i felt like i were not even there as a photographer–just as an innocent bystander watching a happy family enjoying a chilly evening in ‘their’ park.
i love these images because they are different and because they are powerful representative of their happiness.
in viewing these-you can feel the chill in the air but it soon disappears as the images convey the warmth and love that truly surrounds this family.
thanks C and D for letting me be ‘ your’ photographer. i’ve so enjoyed watching the beauty of your lives unfold over the years.
