I often get requests to photograph families, especially when there are family members who live far away. I “get that”, having family members who live far away myself. It is so enjoyable to have family who was raised together, come together again to enjoy one another.
It is so important to have photographs of those rare times. One member said to me — why are you so particular–it is just a picture! Oh my goodness, I thought. Pictures are memories in print! After these important family times are over, pictures help us enjoy those times long after.
One name I really wanted for my business was “Once Upon A Time”. Once upon a time, our children were little. Once upon a time, there were many celebrations that took place at important milestones: graduations, birthdays, weddings, births. Once upon a time, the grandchildren were little, and then the great-grandchildren.
Pictures prolong that enjoyment way far into the future! This is what I was able to create on that day when the Hollanders came together to get pictures taken. They were laughing, posing, playing, eating and enjoying their time together being with their Mom and Dad. Even Aunts and Uncles came to get in on the act!
