‘Mom, I love you… but …Family Photos!??… You Can’t be Serious!’

WASHINGTON, Ia. – It is a rare opportunity for Janee and Ross these days to have both boys under one roof. And when they did, their days were full of travel and time with friends and family. Last year, Janee picked the winning recipient of my 2nd annual Giving is Awesome contest, and was entitled to a $50 gift card which she used toward a family session with her, Ross, and their two grown boys, Jordan, 24, and Lucas, 19.

Coordinating this session wasn’t easy. They had a small window of time with Jordan being in town (He lives in Washington, D.C.). And it had been ages since the family had photos taken. As a side note, I wanted to develop this session into more of an interactive experience, rather than a look-at-the-camera-and-smile kind of shoot. So I captured what I saw – which is challenging when no one is age 5 or younger. These are a few favorites:

Can you feel the brotherly love?:-)  … And Jordan, well… shows the face of a young man burned out with intense time around Mom…

No, this is not their house. We shot the session at a nearby park in Washington, Iowa.

The men in the family are like tall towers, especially next to me. But I couldn’t resist getting this shot with Janee.

Good times!
