I was recently asked to photograph my friend’s family, as they were looking for some fun, candid, moments together. I’ve been friends with the husband and wife for a long time as we grew up together. I’ve known Sam since junior high and Sayre since High School. We all go way back in Michigan and even though I live in Colorado now, we still keep in touch. Recently, they had a little girl whom I met for the first time last winter. This time that I saw her, she’s grown a bit and can speak a few words, and she understands a lot of verbal cues and gestures. She’s pretty shy, but warmed up to me rather quickly. We spent a little time playing together before our photo shoot later in the evening. We went to a local park in Ann Arbor (which I forget the name of now) that featured walking paths and a small lake. Our shoot went from playing with ant hills, to walking together on bridges, and later, gazing at geese and ducks. I had a great time hanging out with the Corbin family and I look forward to our next visit.
