10.22.17 Baird Family

The Baird family asked for golden hour candids of three generations for their family. It was a humid fall day, but we made it work.

The oldest grandchild, Arlo, was fascinated by my lens. I’m not sure why, but I love it. I got a few nice shots of him staring directly into the void.

Ian, the youngest of the Baird children, was so loving and caring with his nephew. It was adorable to watch.

The youngest, Isla. She was more confused, instead of fascinated like her older brother.

Jess and John had recently gotten engaged, so of course I wanted to take some ring pictures.

Mike and Jackie, classical, iconic, royalty.

At times, it was hard getting everyone together. It’s hard to get a group all in the right lighting composition, all look happy while also looking comfortably candid.

I related to Arlo bringing water into the atmosphere. It’s important to stay hydrated.

I’ve never really been a huge fan of kids. I think they’re cute and all, but it’s just never really been my thing. Even when I was a kid, I didn’t like kids.

Arlo, though, stole my heart. He and I went off a few times and I photographed him simply being an almost two-year-old. This next one was when he was trying to give me a helmet. Why? I’m not sure, but I was honored.

More of the fake film I’ve been messing around with.

I wasn’t sure if he was allowed to chew on sticks. My cat isn’t allowed to, so I did nicely ask him to consider putting the stick down (he listened, unlike my cat).

Isla’s face is honestly me in all my classes.

Again, not much of a kid person. Kid clothes, though? Iconic.

While we waited for golden hour to set to a nicer hue, Ian and Arlo went out into their spacious yard. They ran around and it was really, really cute.

It was nice photographing such a lively family. I look forward to working with them again.
