Last spring, I was contacted to conduct a dual photo session - an engagement/mother/daughter/family shoot. Basically, an all in one.
We started the session at a local pool hall, since the couple enjoyed time there.
Then we traveled to a downtown area to take some family portraits.
Finally, we went to a nearby park and took some more engagement/family pictures.
Part of my new style is to make sure that when doing a family session that each family member has a picture with their parents, without the other siblings. When daddy passed away, I remember my brother struggling to find a picture that just the two of them had taken together. Trust me, it was really difficult. Since then, I've made it a point to make sure that that won't be the case for any family that I photograph.
I'm sad to say that Robert passed away during the Christmas holidays, so one special little girl lost her daddy and one bride-to-be lost her soulmate. In spite of the sadness, I am happy that I was able to give this family a set of images that they can always cherish. And when the little one gets older, she'll always be able to remember the time when her daddy was able to hold her in his arms.
