Now, these people are special to me, and this is the third year in a row that I have photographed this family. And you can see it. There is so much love between Grandfather ("Pa"), and Grandson. It exudes from them, and they can feel how much I care and how happy I am to be behind the lens again. It also helps to have a compliant child. He's the easiest child I've ever worked with.
When you make a connection, and your client knows it's about the joy of capturing something priceless, and not about your paycheck, your photos will shine. Look at that intense, warm eye contact!
I love this job!
