“We are a family”

April 4, 2010

Okay, so I admit its nerdy but that song was in my head while editing this families photo shoot.  And I know I just put that song in your head now…you know you love me. 🙂 What do I love about shooting a family?  Its unique, each family has a beautiful way that they interact…little tiny details…inside jokes…little looks between the parents as they watch their kids do something funny…how they ultimatly usually unite in thinking what a dork I am and it makes them laugh…yeah, I’m okay with it.  Because, well, at the heart of it, I am a dork.  And I’ve embraced it. 🙂  So families…yeah, I love watching families love on eachother…I love the protective looks of a father with his kids…I love the desire in little kids to show off for their parents…I love the look of total and complete joy on a Mom’s face…basically, families melt my heart.  I happen to be blessed to be a part of a wonderful family…so its part of what I enjoy capturing. So here is a family that laughs, lives and loves eachother.  At one point during this shoot the grandson RACED his grandpa…literally, was not my idea…but hey, they wanted to do it…and can I just say…it was not a wimpy race…no, they full on sprinted as fast as they could.  Seriously made my day.  Thank you for that.
