I have a friend who has four grown children, two children-in-law, and two grand babies. She recently did a life review and realized she wasn't in many family photos. She called me up one day, determined, and said "I want to do a photo session so I can give the kids some photos of me." I was so excited. My ideas were flowing. A few weeks later she said, "I've thought about it, and I don't want to be the only one in the photos. I want to include my family." Which is really quite typical of my friend. Her family is at the front of every thought and every decision she makes. It was fitting that everyone should gather for some photos!
Lately my focus has been on seniors, so it was delightful to capture a family with many levels. "Uncle Beard" dressed as Santa to help his niece overcome her fear of the guy, but it didn't exactly work. The littlest one had no qualm about hanging out in the velvety arms of the world's most notorious gift giver.
While my friend declined to be in the center of every photo, it was a great tribute to her family, just the same. Memories were made in the process of capturing moments. As always with LAF Lines Photo, we do our best to capture the "perfect" photo, but always allow for real life to dictate the outcomes. It was a beautiful evening.
There is no one I trust more to peek into my family’s private moments than lidija. I treasure her keen eye, her friendship, and her ability to capture life at its best.
