This family patriarch was gifted a portrait session from his kids for his birthday and I was lucky enough to be chosen for this momentous occasion. I’ve known Rick and Cindy for several years, I even did a professional portrait of him years ago for another project. But I hadn’t met the rest of his family, so I was excited to do so.
Just like any extended family portrait session I do, I worked carefully with each family unit to get photos of their walls so I could recommend what sized grouping worked best in their respective homes. By the time the session day came around, I felt like I knew the daughter and daughter in law, and knew what I was shooting for.
Here is Rick and Cindy’s favorite group image:
Below are some “behind the scenes” shots that were taken by my
sister in law assistant who was helping me. Unfortunately, most of the BTS shots are of my backside. 🙂
You’ll also see a mock up of the wall grouping Rick and Cindy selected for their living room, right above the baby grand piano. This is from the original snapshot I took of the space with the final images and rendering of the frames – I added these in my planning software so they could see what the grouping would look like in the space.
Since Rick and Cindy have recently moved to another home, I hope to get over there to photograph the grouping in its new location!
