Vacationing with My Favorite People: Family!

How could I be a family portrait photographer and not enjoy documenting my own family? Besides documenting them will keep me sharp and focused as I continue mastering my craft.

 

 My wife and my niece. These girls have so much fun!

 The niece got a big waterslide as her summer toy complete with a water canon. She enjoyed shooting us more than sliding :).

And what is summer fun without bubbles?

 I love getting to have coffee with the seasoned and experienced. They have so much knowledge and wisdom about things I have never thought about. Pops told me about making the best Po-boy sandwich I've ever had!! Smoked Boston Butt + Toasted French Bread + Honey = Gloriously Delish!! Probably really bad for me, but this is called vacation for a reason!

 This little babe has taught me a lot about photography. Because of her epic adventurous speed, I can now capture brides on the move with ease during a wedding ceremony.

 We've grown since last year, but ultimately we are still our goofy rambuntious selves.

 One of the best lessons from my family that I am continually learning, is the fact that we need each other. No matter how goofy, annoying, frustrating, sad, or mad we may be. Without our family we are lost. Someone once taught us how to do the simple things. Things that get taken for granted. Like brushing your teeth or waiting patiently for the bacon to finish cooking. Without that someone taking the time to teach us, we would still be lost. I'd rather be found any day of the week with the people who mean the most to me. Family.
