I have known Jeannette for over 30 years. She was working at the same place where I met my husband. We lost touch over the years and through Facebook, we were able to reconnect a few years ago.
She asked me to take a few pictures of her family. She saw some of my samples and thought that it was time to update her family pictures too. Her son just finished his tour in the service and now that he was home for a little bit, she want to get some pictures done.
We were able to meet and head to out on a beautiful summer day. It was wonderful to be able to have so much time and use 3 different places to take pictures. Each place lent for a whole new set of fun. Everyone was so terrific to work with and I enjoyed spending so much time with them.
As for most men, I am sure this wasn't the number one favorite thing to do on a summer morning. But we had a fun time and they were wonderful to work with. They were open to just about anything.
All they wanted was to make (mom/wife) Jeannette happy.
And as for most of my photo sittings, you as the client, will always get a CD of all the high resolution images, (adjusted and some with some fun filters). They are yours to do as you wish.
So no matter how old your "babies" are..... Family pictures are an important piece of personal history to keep and treasure.
