This year I have gently shifted the focus of my photography business to concentrate on family relationships. Especially those of children with their parents and grandparents. I feel strongly that this is one area that most people neglect to photograph, but is really the most important! There are lots of reasons for this – sometimes it’s because moms are the ones photographing their kids and therefore are behind the camera, not in front of it. Sometimes it’s logistics. It is HARD to coordinate a photo session with everyone’s busy schedules. Sometimes it’s because the adults are reluctant to be photographed (yes I’m looking at YOU).
But before I give YOU the lecture about getting in the picture, I had to do it myself. When my grandkids were visiting us here in Keowee Key in August, I made sure that Jim and I did just that.
Of course, we waited until the last day to do it because, as always, there is so much going on when they are here because it’s vacation for them. I almost bailed several times, thinking about where/when/what to wear/omg my roots are showing/Jim & the kids are whining, but I just sort of set it all free and GOT IT DONE. My daughter Stacey (who is a good photographer in her own right) helped do the ones with me in them.
And I’m so, so glad that I did. I LOVE these images of all of us. I will treasure them always!
