Family Connections & Portraiture

I met Laura several years ago when she reached out to me about purchasing some images that I had photographed of her son, Paul, earlier that year.  Paul had done some modeling for me and he was an early supporter of my work.  He played a small role in helping me define my photographic style and the type of photography I wanted to put out there for public viewing.  I had dabbled in conceptual art photography for a while, but I  did a complete 360, and fell in love with family and high school senior portraiture.  There was something about capturing the family connection and the family story.  It stayed with me and I haven’t turned back since.  

Jump ahead a few more years and once again I met up with Paul for a reunion of sorts, and we discussed doing some head shots for his social media outlets. This time I told him to make sure he shared the gallery with his mother.  

Laura ended up reaching out to me once again and requested a separate portrait session for her daughter, Jenn, and also a family portrait session.  I was thrilled to oblige and happy that she was familiar with and loved my work.  It was great to meet Paul’s sister and his father too.  I was invited to their home and we shot these beautiful images in their backyard.  The location was stunning and lovely to wander through.

Can I say that I’m one lucky photographer to meet such a wonderful family!  Thanks to Paul for connecting and bringing us all together.

Ahnen Family Portrait Session

The last couple of weeks we’ve had a heat wave here in New Hampshire.  But for this photo session–shot in the late afternoon–it was just perfect and we even had a slight breeze.  The Ahnen family did a great job and it was such a pleasure to photograph them outdoors.  They were up to trying anything that I threw at them.  I’m very pleased with the images I captured of this lovely family within the open landscape.

Thanks to the Ahnen family for coming out and withstanding the heat.   I’m so thrilled and happy that you all loved the images!
