We feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know your family.

Carrie and Rob and family

It’s rare to meet a family that really knows how to sieze the day, walk the less-traveled path, and suck the marrow out of life.

You are inspiring.

You exhibit a quiet confidence.

A stillness.

Like you belong together.

And all is right in the world.

It was neat for me to meet you and realize I had already been helped out by your website.

I guess it’s true: it really is a small world wide web after all.

It was great getting to work with you.

It always makes our job easy when our subjects are so lovely.

But more than beauty, you two have a lot to offer.

Shortly after we finished with Shanaka we were back at the college with another senior. This time we met up with Marcus.

Marcus at the college

He was a lot of fun to work with. He wasn’t sure he really wanted any senior pictures taken at all, and when Jill found out, she was really excited. She’d say, “That’s perfect. Show us some attitude!”

I’m not sure whether that encouraged him or not, but he gave us some great expressions for his pictures, and he seemed to be enjoying himself as we progressed through the session.

We went out with Shanaka around the college and downtown Caldwell and took some senior pictures. We were really impressed with him.

Not only is he very handsome, but he’s got a brilliant mind that you can see shining in those eyes.

We had a lot of fun working with him and getting to know him just a bit better.

We had taken Shanaka’s family pictures last year. It’s always nice to have repeat customers.

The prediction was for a 30% chance of rain. The sky was overcast, but it didn’t really look all that threatening. So we decided it would be fun to throw our love seat in the back of the truck and head out for some family pictures with Jayson and Megan and their children. We first stopped at the college and borrowed the grand piano to take some pictures of the children playing the piano and their violins. This was my favorite shot of that series.

When we left, we realized that the couch, sitting in the back of the pickup, had been drenched by the rain. It was still coming down, but fairly lightly, so we decided to set out for more pictures. We stopped at a field that we had found a few days before and asked permission to use. Everything was a bit wet and soggy, but they were all great sports.

You can’t really tell from the pictures, but everyone was slowly getting soaked. We decided it was now or never, so we pulled out the couch, wiped it down as well as we could, and grabbed a few more shots before calling it a day.

By this time the rain was starting to show on their clothes and hair, and everyone was starting to get a bit chilly, so we decided to head for home. Unfortunately, the car battery had died in all the fun, and we had to find someone nice enough to give us a jump start.
