I am not sure when I have had more fun with a family for their portraits. As a photographer, I *know* that not everyone likes to have their portrait made. I certainly don't. (That explains why I'm usually holding the camera, rather than smiling at it.) This family was just plain awesome.
The ones that lived in other states had driven home to visit their parents for the Easter weekend. They had been trying to get all four siblings, spouses and children under the same roof at the same time for too long not to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and do a big family portrait.
They coordinated a basic color scheme that would be easy for everyone to work with, which is such a smart plan.
We were threatened by some light rain showers right up to our session time. Thankfully, they faded and just the right amount of sunlight came out.
The Bolton family is filled with the fun-loving people that you want to spend the afternoon with. Pull up a lawn chair. Sip on a sweet tea. Talk about the kids and growing up. And laugh until your side hurts.
Thank you, Sandy, Cindy, Becky, Eddy, Mr. and Mrs. Bolton. Thank you for sharing an afternoon of your Easter weekend with me.
