They say photographer’s kids are the worst to take photos of because they are tired of getting their picture taken. Well, Maggie and Dylan may not be my kids, but they are definitely tired of me taking their photos! They were always my practice subjects and usually made an appearance in at least one series while I was in art school. Maggie even had an entire series to herself of which a photo was selected for the Student Annual Art Show! So they might have “photographer’s second cousin syndrome” instead of “photographers kid syndrome.”
We have been trying to get family photos since, well since Dylan was born. But something always came up and schedules never lined up. Thankfully we finally got their photos done! Jen has always been like a big sister to me so her kids have always been like my niece and nephew, which many mistake us for, and Rob has been like a big brother to me. This family is the best, and always a riot to work with! I did my usual “look at the kids, tickle them, play with them” and everyone looks at Dylan! Sorry Maggie, the baby of the family always gets the attention! So the joke for the rest of the night was, “look at the favorite child!” But don’t feel too bad, Maggie gets plenty of attention and spoiled rotten, which I am slightly guilty of doing so…but now I need to go make brownies with Dylan since that’s how I had to bribe him to smile!
Oh, and yes Rob, your hair is fabulous!
