Back in November I had the opportunity to photograph this wonderful family. I usually have a lot of fun when I do shoots, but this one was particularly fun because of the connections I had with the family. Mom and I used to work in the same school together. Both of us are no longer there. I was also one of the girl's 3rd grade teacher. She was an excellent student, I have heard the same about her twin sister.
We lucked out after having to reschedule a couple of times due to bad weather. This day was perfect. The afternoon light was great for clowning around in. Dad and crew were very open to my crazy ideas. I like to be a bit goofy. Teens so love when parents show affection for each other, not.
The family choose to have their photos taken in there own home and yard. It was a wise choice to show their surroundings. There is a lot of love in this family and it is nice to document their lives in their familiar surroundings.
Look up, look down, what do you think looks better? I like them both. They were so much fun, willing to do anything.
They even got a workout!
It was a pleasure to work with you Reyes family. I hope you had as much fun as I did.
After 31 years of teaching, I have decided to retire and start a new chapter of my life as a photographer. It has been my passion for about 7 years now.
