Four generations & two photographers!!

Wesley & I were so honored to be commissioned to photograph this fabulous family. This family is so special in so many ways. 1st – there were 4 generations there and that s always special. 2nd – the oldest member of the family is 96 and he still absolutely adores his wife! 3rd – The 3rd generation of the family are a brother and sister and they are BOTH photographers. Eric lives in Austin, TX and Rayna lives in Rapid City, SD. Yeah…no pressure here. 4th – The photographers are both expecting their 2nd child!! How cool is that?? We really enjoyed talking “shop” with Rayna & Eric and wish we could have spent longer with them. We all seem to have the same interests in the world of photography and it’s so interesting to talk to people in our industry that aren’t in our market. Anyway, we had a good time and we didn’t melt in the noontime July heat.

These two are so dang cute!! Can you see the admiration on Anita’s face?

Eric & Rayna are in the middle.

I love this shot. It shows 4 generations and an entire view of a tree which is commonly used as a sign of family. You know….the family tree. Nicole was obviously not as impressed with this shot as I was! LOL! This was Wes’ shot!! This is why I pay him the big bucks!

The next 2 shots….so many kisses and so much love!

Thanks so much for trusting us to capture your precious family. We know it’s not easy to be on the other side of the camera and you all did it so well! We just spent some time on Eric’s blog and he has a very funny video of his son. I really like Eric’s sense of humor.
