i get the honor of photographing this family twice a year and have done so for a few years now. and i love every minute of it.
mom and dad truly invest (in time AND money) in memories of their kids being kids and never fuss about it. i respect and admire that. but even more admiration goes to the fact that they do exactly what i (as an artist, a mom and a photographer) could ask of them: they let their kids be themselves. they cherish the fun smiles, the quirky ones and even the grumpy faces. the kids are mine for that hour or two and we just document them spending time together. it’s true photojournalism at its best. and this time mom and dad let me convince them to be in a few frames as well. (ok i insisted but they didn’t fight me too hard.)
and for me being with them it NEVER work. our sessions begin with hugs and end with hugs and lots of smiles. this is a family i honestly want to hang around ALL the time.
thanks again guys for always trusting me to capture your life of togetherness!! i always always look forward to our time together!
