I’ve had the honor of photographing this amazing family for the last three years, which is always an honor because Mom is a rockin’ photographer, so I know she has a discerning eye with her own family’s images. I LOVE to photograph other photographer’s families. They always arrive perfectly styled (ummmmmm, did you notice that big sister’s nail polish was perfectly coordinated???), are easy going, and often have a few fun ideas of pictures too (soooo glad that Mallory suggested we get that final silhouette shot!).
I think my favorite images from this session are the sunset shots of just mom and dad. When was the last time you had a professional image with JUST your spouse? When I think back on my grandparents’ and great aunt/uncle’s homes I remember that they each had framed portraits from when they were probably the same age as I am know. I remember studying those pictures for hours – I loved the fashions, seeing how they looked in their youth, and truly getting that they had spent a lifetime together. Anyhow, I hope that these portraits bring the same joy to this family today and many, many years down the road!
