Johnson Family

Oh my goodness. This extended family session was FULL of great stuff. First of all, I photographed one of the couple’s wedding several years ago, back when I was still shooting film! We even re-enacted one of their wedding photos. Second, there are TEN kids in this extended family. Ten kids full of spunk and laughter and independence. There is also a lot of love in this family, which I think is so evident in the photos. And last, we did all the photos at their parents’ ranch, which is up for sale. So I spent some extra time documenting the place and all of its personal landmarks. Sometimes, if I have time, it’s fun for me to include photos of the locations where I do photo shoots, to give a sense of place to my client’s images. But this time it was extra important for me to capture the surroundings… so many years of memories were there, and I wanted to give this family a way to remember them.
