Lisa and I have seven nieces and nephews on her side of the family and we’re so excited to have our eighth (the first on my side of the family) arrive early next year! My oldest brother, Dustin, and his woman, Candace, are expecting their first baby on February 9, 2013 and the whole family is ecstatic to meet the first member of the next generation. Big deal, let me tell you!
The four of us got together on a Sunday (after our Christmas Sweater party the day before…read it and you’ll understand why sometimes I amaze myself) and spent a good chunk of the day together. One of the perks of working with family (albeit they’re often your most stubborn customers!) is A: they cant choose any other photographer because that would be just plain rude! and B: you can make them do whatever you want, and that we did. We took them out to my favorite farm and made them tough out the cold, then to the studio for a couple more hours. Yes, they (Dustin) were exhausted and annoyed by the end but I did not mind. I’m such a good brother!
In all seriousness though, we had so much fun that day and these are some of my favorite shots to date. And truth be told, your non-paying customers are the best to experiment on. Less than two months until we get to meet who’s better known as Baby G! Unless of course he or she decides to wait until my birthday on February 26th! How cool would that be! Amirite, Candace!?
Can’t wait for baby G pictures… To be continued!
