Of all the crazy, outlandish things that we get to do here at TWP, a session at home on an ordinary day is by far my very, very, very favorite thing to do. The significance is rich and the truth in the surroundings and relationships are unequivocal. I love peeking into the real lives of people and getting to know them through photography.
See this kid? Top series? Love him.
He's always been animated...here's one of our previous sessions together if you're into that sort of thing --->>> click here. Such a stinker. His baby brother is going to be holding his own before long. I can't wait to see how that shakes out.
I so enjoy watching the nuances in family relationships and how siblings learn to adjust to one another. I strongly believe some of that comes through the images we create.
In all the years I've been working with this family, this was the first time we attempted an Urban Session. They totally rocked it. I love the playful nature in their familiy...and in their images!
Wendy is a photographer for our sister photography company, The Polished Olive. She's a very gifted photographer and we just love her. She has never had a generational portrait done, so she honored me with the invitation to do that for her...and what a special honor it was! Her little g'ma is over 90. Over 90! Isn't she beautiful!
There are 5 generations represented here and they are all bursting with personality. I love watching connections and relationships between all the family members. Thanks so much, Mrs. Wendy for allowing me the privilege of doing this for you!
The light sabers.
All of it. Absolutely all of it.
You may remember this family...they're quite unforgettable.
They have personality PLUS! Plus what? Plus more personality, that's what.
I literally either laugh or have permagrin from the time they walk in to the moment we part.
Their joy, sarcasm, dry humor and depth leave me wanting more every time I see them.
Oh, and did I mention their willingness to do crazy things? They let me lay their first son
down in really tall grass, wrapped in a blanket up on Roan Mtn.. This year they let me float their new baby boy down the river in a basket. They rock.
We did a two part session Maternity/Newborn. Both by water to carry the theme. I think it's pretty obvious in the images where one story stops and the other starts. Isn't it cool how our bodies, as women, change so drastically, so rapidly? I love that.
