Hard to believe I have known Dionne, Alie, and Eric for over a decade now. I am constantly surprised by how fast time goes and how quickly the years add up. These three lovely people are the cousins of my daughter and her father. In our household we have our own unique “modern family”. My husband and I are lucky to have a close friendship with my ex. We all co-parent our daughter, Maddie, together. As a result, his family is my family. Therefore when his cousins called asking if I would consider photographing their sibling portrait for their parents and grandparents I felt quite honored.
It was so nice to be with Dionne, Alie, and Eric all at the same time. As everyone gets older and has more responsibilities it becomes increasingly more challenging for us all to be in the same place at the same time. So to have all four of us together at one place was such a joy. Gave us plenty of time to chat and catch up in addition to capturing some portraits.
We had a last minute change of plans due to wind. The four of us had planned a beautiful park setting for their session. Unfortunately the day of there was a nasty wind storm. Knowing this would never work I suggested an equally beautiful location. A historic home that not only provided ample protection from the wind, but was also a lovely setting for these three siblings.
