On the Ol' family homestead
I really enjoyed my time with the Merkley Family -- who asked if I would meet them at Huber Grove in Midway because of their ancestry ties to the location. I always love using a location that has special significance to the client.
Just letting the kids be kids
I knew the Merkleys were my type of client, when I looked back at them while photographing their gaggle of grandkids -- who, by parent's standards, needed to calm down -- and instead of looks of stress and worry that I wasn't getting those "perfect" grandkid shots, only laughed and smiled at the spectacle.
I love letting kids be kids (funny faces and all) and grateful for clients who want that as well.
