Portrait Sessions

Grapentin Family: Portraits

My brother Brandon has been dating an awesome girl named Jen for one year now, and her immediate family needed updated family photos. Or as Jen told me, their only family photos. Hah! I loved spending some time with these folks on a trail not too far from our home. And as you can clearly see, the star of the show was little 2-year-old Thomas. Unfortunately, I photoshopped out the rug burn on his nose, so you don’t get to enjoy that scab anymore. He’s adorable. And documenting family shoots like this, with a mix of posed and “everyday” life, make me want to consider shooting them more. Just maybe. Happy Monday & start of a new work-week! (This’ll be my last before Christmas, I think. Yahoo!)
