generations of family.
Kieu and her family were referred to me from one of my own family… my older brother, Jake. Jake and Kieu work together at Komatsu, and like a proud brother, I’m guessing he was gushing about my budding photography business. Apparently, my brother has more confidence in my photography skills than I do, being that he recently recruited me to get action shots of his collector’s item BMW, and now was referring me to a co-worker of his that wanted family photos taken through three generations of family–another thing I’ve never done before.
The session was set for 4:30pm on a Sunday afternoon that was supposed to be 100 degrees. So we pushed it back in hopes that it would cool down a bit. I met with Charlie & Kim, their daughters Patti & Kieu, their husbands Rick & Greg, and Ashley & Joey (Kieu and Greg’s children) at Pottowatomie Park at 7:00pm, but unfortunately it hadn’t cooled down much. The entire family were great sports, however, climbing on rocks, sitting on the grass, and jumping from stone to stone over a creek.
Shooting a family through generations was such a great thing to see and I hope I was able to capture some photos they will cherish forever. It even made me want to get some family photos done of mine! Here are some of my favorite….
