Party of 26

Originally uploaded by whitecottonstudio.

Last summer, my grandparents celebrated 60 years of marriage together. Family members traveled from far ends of the United States to North Dakota for a large group gathering. There were about 30 of us, and even though my grandparents live in a tiny town, they live right behind the photo studio. It wasn’t too big of an ordeal to get a photo of all of us.

But when you live in rural Oklahoma suburbia, what is a family to do? My latest client was hosting a celebration and reunion for her family in her home, and she called me up. She said the same thing I know all too well, “It’s the only time we’ll all be together, and I really wanted some photos of all of us.”

Sometimes you just don’t want to fiddle with the camera timer when a large group of people are involved.

When I arrived, it started to rain (the state is thinking of changing it’s name to Oklarainforest). Twenty-five members were sitting in the kitchen and living room and got to watch the action unfold as I set up a makeshift studio in my client’s living room. She had a large wall that was just perfect for hanging up some backdrops, and beautiful wood floors that had a nice rich color.

I enjoyed the grandchildren (always asking questions of course!), and even the adults hammed it up for me. I could tell how much the grandchildren appreciated their grandparents, and I could totally relate when it comes to cherishing the time spent together and capturing those moments on film for years to come.

Before the move

I swear, I get all the luck sometimes. These photos are from my most recent maternity shoot, and mom was a complete joy to photograph. The hardest thing about it was trying to find clothes and poses that made her look more pregnant, if you can believe it.

Since mom said that she enjoyed art, I switched up my usual editing style and tried a couple of new things. I really had fun, and who knows? Maybe I’ll have some newborn shots to post for her soon.

Sweet baby boy

This couple and their 9-week-old are a referral from one of my very first clients. It reminded me of how long I’ve come as well as how much I have to learn. The poor little guy sleeps through the night, but is a light sleeper during the day. My noisy lens did nothing to help him slumber when mom finally shushed him to sleep.

The next collage is an example of a square storyboard or print that I offer. These are really cute!
