My father, the "grand poobah" of family photography in my childhood universe, turned his lens on these children's mother and her siblings many times during our family vacations together. I have such fond memories of those times...singing Irish songs and playing together until we collapsed! It was with a delightful sense of a tradition being continued that I was thrilled to make these pictures of HER beautiful children. Especially since her youngest looks almost exactly like his aunt, who was a best buddy of mine way back when. Even though I was battling technical issues with the flare and glare of the sun, ultimately, I think it makes the pictures better. The glow adds to the sentimental feel of some of them for me. I think this effect will get stronger over time- like our own dreamy memories of childhood. Thanks for a great shoot, guys!
