I’ve had the pleasure of photographing The Hendricks family twice now and I’ve had such a fun time working with them and it’s always so exciting to meet a family’s new addition! My favorite part of this shoot other than playing Thomas The Tank Engine with Walter, was photographing baby Vivian in a hand made blanket made by her great grandmother, Ima. What an honor being chosen to capture such an amazing time in a family’s life! It seems like such a small thing, having your photo taken. What you don’t often think about it later in life, the passing around of family photographs and the sharing of stories and memories. This is something my own family loves to do and I have many fond memories of watching slides on the projector with my grandparents of past generations gone by. Such a simple thing with lasting impact! I’m feeling so grateful today for having what I think, is the best job in the world!
