I have a friend I did a Triathlon with. she is stunning and has an equally gorgeous family. they asked me to do their family shots and after a few ideas we opted to start at their home and move from there to an oak tree in her neighborhood that she loves. then we thought we'd try a dilapidated barn we would have to break into (eek!). keep in mind we are in Texas ;)
we managed to get some good shots at the home.
but my friend is a creative, fun type and I did not think these pictures would be reflective of them, so we got ready to go to the barn. as I am walking through the garage I spot an 1970 fully restored Chevy pick-up truck. I couldn't believe it. it was perfect. my friend tells me about the truck, it has a story. her dad owned it when she was a kid and then his best friend restored it when he passed. now it's being enjoyed by a whole different generation. we dropped the barn idea and decided to move the truck by the tree and this was the result.
amazing what some flexibility and a good attitude can do. the family was a treat and at the end we got the edgy, artistic and timeless pictures we were after.
