It's always an honor to be asked to take family portraits, and even more so when you're asked by a fellow photographer you admire! Hilary Murphy of Hilary Murphy Photography reached out to me to capture some family portraits while her Mother was visiting from Tennessee and her Sister and family were visiting from Southern California. As a photographer, I know the struggle of taking family portraits yourself. You set the tripod up, have 10 seconds to run into the photo, it is not an easy task! I'm such a fan of Hilary's work, I was thrilled she asked me to visit them on their amazing farm and take these special photos. They were such a fun, easy going group!
In addition, Hilary and her sister Ashley have a business together where Ashley writes and performs one of a kind songs to go with Hilary's beautiful photography. They asked if I could take some photos for their website, and their beauty, sisterly-bond and talent shined through.
We had our little shoot on a 90 degree afternoon in late July... so when they told me they had a special idea for their last photo... I was all in! I think more shoots should end this way! Thank you Hilary and family for a wonderful afternoon!
