As you probably know, it was just father's day this past Sunday. What you may not have known is that I got to shoot a portrait session of two friends of my wife and I who happen to be brother and sister. Oh but this wasn't just a willy-nilly portrait session for the heck of it, no no no. This was a portraiture with a purpose and that purpose was to break the cycle in cliche gifts of ties and shavers. Why not gift your dad with a great photo of what made him a dad, one that reminds him of you in a more idealized setting where you're not draining his bank account, spitting up on his clothes, or making him carry a flowery diaper bag. Just give him the good stuff, your smiling faces that hopefully in some way resemble his own.
It was a hot day, like most these days, but at least it was dry and windy! These two were champs and we made it to a few different settings before having our energies depleted in the 100+ degree weather. Above and below are some of my favorite shots from the day. Thanks M & J!
