Portraits of Sisters

Cherish these moments

Sisters. I have always loved the connection between sisters. How their personalities ebb and flow when they are together. It is this beautiful melody. Their mother came to me for a beautiful session that we kept, just for her. And then we had a portrait session with her family and her daughters simply, beamed. I couldn’t NOT share them with you, they are lovely, wonderful girls.

The Hoodenpyle Family

When I launched 828 earlier this year, one of my first portrait clients was the Hoodenpyle family. I knew John from a previous restaurant job (that shall remain nameless) and he and his wife had recently had a baby, Master Emerson. Little E was coming on a month old and they hadn’t found anyone to take his newborn pictures when they reached out to me.

Since then, they have been wonderful supporters of 828 in helping me to get the word out and I cannot thank them enough! Here’s to a happy boy and a happy family!!!

This first set of images is from a mini-shoot we did as a result of the family winning a contest I held in September! Congratulations John, Leigh and Emerson!!!
