100 foot oaks, the McKenzie river, flowing fields, people who love each other… beautiful is the best word I could come up with to describe the shoot. Kelly and Brandon have an adorable family, and an even more adorable way with their kids. I appreciate good parenting in a much deeper way ever since I became a parent myself. Calm, patient, loving… it takes work to keep that up in real life, not to mention at a family shoot (note previous family shoot scars in tone of type). But, this was my kind of family shoot; great people, amazing location, the request for fun and not overly pose-y, oh, and she wants all black & white. Yes please, and thank you.
Brandon works for the electrical vendor I contracted with at my previous job, and if you have work to be done, do yourself a favor and call New Way Electric first. There’s a very good reason they were on the short list of my “favorite vendors” for over 10 years.
I’m sure I will post more of the session later, but for now, just try to resist the perfectly messy curls. I dare you.
