I just decided. I’m blogging again.
The goal for this session was to get photographic evidence of their life and their house in Portland, OR before a big adventurous move to Ukraine, where Mom was raised. It took place just a few weeks before they left – so the photos were delivered and viewed in Ukraine – cool. Two things to note: I was warned before-hand that Dad was notoriously awkward for photos, and was texted hours before by mom in a last minute panic about the house. FYI this is a very very typical house for me to shoot in. Modest, small, patchy light – you will see we clung to windows. It was perfect. I tell you this to prove a point: it doesn’t matter, because you would never know.
I will make sure your husband has fun and your house looks flooded in light. ;)
These might be some of my favorite pics you’ve ever posted! Love them all!
I’m with Erin.
