I had the wonderful experience of taking family portraits for this family a couple of weeks ago. Remember their sneak peek?
Well, I finally made my way through the rest of their shots, and got their gallery up. It's always such a relief when the client tells me that they love what we captured. I wonder if I'll ever be 100% confident in my abilities to do this? :-)
Before we met, I had a vision for a shot I wanted to do of their family. Dad is often off fighting for our country, and I wanted to take a shot that represented what he does and what this family is about. I took this shot (top shot in the following collage)...Dad in uniform, Mom and kids playing together, Dad standing off to the side and out of focus...sort of a "there but not there" feel to it.
And then I snapped a shot of the kids doing a spontaneous pledge to our flag, and this collage was born (the flag in the background is the flag in the park that day):
We had lots of romp-around fun and silliness in the park with these boys. What great little buddies they are!
