The Monro Family & The Other Guy

August 06, 2011  •  Leave a Comment
 Meet the Monro family.  Oh, and The Other Guy.  Wendy & Claud live in a small town about 20 minutes or so from my small town.  Their oldest daughter, Ella, lives across the pond, as does her boyfriend, The Other Guy (his family & friends call him Jacob, I'm sure).
 Can you tell they're enjoying their time together?  I am realizing now that I picked mostly goofy pictures for this Sneak Peek.  But then again, I also picked way more than I was going to. I guess I was swept away by it all.  I had such a great time with these guys.  It's one of the things I love the most about being a Photographer.  Not just the taking pictures and editing and producing products part.  Nope.  It's the people.  I love people and talking with them.  Hearing their stories and seeing how they interact with each other.  Finding out what it means to them to be a family.  Dear Daphne insisted that I stay for supper.  After some inner debating as to whether it was politeness or obligation or sincerity and all that other mumbo jumbo I put myself through, I stayed.  I had Pimm's for the first time with fresh berries and herbs straight from the garden.  I had homemade onion rings.  Indian potatoes. Steak.  But most of all, I had a wonderful time.

Sure it was still blasted hot outside.  Very uncomfortable at times.  But then the burst of cool air when we came inside accompanied by a cold beer....totally worth it.   Ella & Daphne jumped off the dock for their last shots.  Don't you love it?  Sisterly love.

I'm so, so happy that I was able to photograph them and spend a few hours together.  I can't wait until we can do it all again.
