Years ago Bob and Karen planted the boxelder tree in the backyard when they started their home. The kids would play under and climb up the boxelder tree. Now the grand kids play in the same tree, which features elegant, tenuous branches reaching out for sunlight beyond the frame of the photo. This family portrait session took place last summer. This winter, the elegant branches were broken off by a heavy snowfall. What timing! After all these years to have the family portrait taken shortly before the branches were snapped off by the snow burden. Now Bob and Karen have the memories of this tree in its glory, along with the family, hanging on the wall forever. This is why I prefer sessions that reflect who you are. Stories that incorporate your interests, hobby, or history. The Story is in the Image.
