By no means do I profess to be a professional photographer…. far from it actually. But I do love taking photos. Nature, city scapes & people, especially people. I like getting the really good shot & I’d like to think I get this shot fairly often. A few years ago I did some family photos for my brother & his family. This summer, I did them for our good friends, the “V” family. Jay is one of Colin’s best friends, so much so that they might as well be brothers. The stories I’ve heard of things they’ve gotten up to…. well, those stories are probably better left untold. Since Colin & I have been married, I’ve come to know Kelly, Jay’s wife well & she has become one of my closest friends. To us, the V’s are family. Jay & Kelly’s children, Eric & Emily, call us Aunt Brandey & Uncle Colin & we love this. Despite not thinking so, their family is quite photogenic & it was far easier to capture good family photos than they thought it would be.
This last one is perhaps one of my favourites…. of all the photos I took of the V’s. This is how Eric smiles all the time when you ask him to smile. For something fun, I told them all to smile like Eric & this is what we got! I love it! I look forward to taking more photos of their family in the future.
