Family Portraits

Ellen is from the UK and her dad travels all over the world for business. When she told me her parents would be in town for a visit I told her we had to take pictures. Ellen’s younger brother still lives in England and when he got word of our plan, he was pretty bummed that they would take family pictures without him. Don’t worry Phil. We talked about you plenty!


My favorite story is the one where Ellen convinces Phil that the lovely operator voice on the telephone who kindly alerts you to the fact that your phone is off the hook was his real mother named Angela. According to Ellen, Phil should be complaining to Angela about the family picture situation! Hahaha….


All kidding aside, I love the way these pictures turned out. I tried some new things with my camera and pushed myself to pose them in ways I don’t normally do. The final result makes me think rock-n-roll.


Ellen has incredibly fierce blue eyes and she wore heels that scream sex and dancing. It was fun trying to capture her fiery personality. I definitely want to do another session with just her. To top it all off, her parents haven’t had their picture taken together since their wedding so I was on a mission to remedy that situation.


Here are a few of my favorites from their session. You can see more by viewing the slide show!
