Sunday with the Hobbs Family

Formal family portrait shoots, where everyone is coordinated in white or black shirts, powdered and primped, and told repeatedly to smile at the camera, admittedly, don’t interest me. But, ask me to come and have blueberry pancakes, hang out and color, take a walk and photograph the nuances of a family Sunday, that is a complete joy! The photographs that result act as a little time capsule, a way to preserve snippets of everyday life that don’t linger long.

I also recorded a bit of audio during the day. I turned the microphone on Greer playing Piano, Sophie reading about Mrs. Wishy Washy, Robert singing Chicken Fingers, and Mary reflecting on motherhood. Editing out a few select moments and thoughts, I created a StoryPortrait, a vignette, a short chapter of a day in the life….

Thanks to the Hobbs family for inviting me to spend a mild winter day with them.
