When It Gets Really Good

Natalie, Greg, and their kids are regulars.  I have been visiting them every few months for over two years.  Usually on a Sunday.  Each visit starts around 9am with a pancake breakfast, prepared lovingly by Greg while I break out my gear and start shooting….whatever.   Between shutter presses, I hear about what’s new with them.  I catch them up on whats new with me.  Occasionally my girlfriend comes along to hang out, have some pancakes, and assist me.  Sometimes, like this Sunday, we take a field trip.   And I just keep shooting.  It turns out to be kind of a Day in the Life of their family (completed in 2 hours).  And its just a LOT of fun.  After photographing them so often, we’ve entered the realm when it just gets really good: the children know me and are always ready and willing to play, I spend almost no time thinking about my gear, I already know where the best light can be found.  There are no nerves in the entire home.  I can be creative.  And they can be their beautiful selves.  I hope that it shows.

…and a visual shout out to the very capable assistant!

    They already have a baby girl with teeth! Wow! I don’t know them but I feel like I do. And Serene is always so dang stylish, even in her casual assistant clothes. Love the gloves.
