Sommer Family

While I was in California I also got to photograph this family.  Just father and son.  They were so perfectly good at being in front of the camera that it was just a joy on my end to enjoy their natural beauty.  Actually, the dad, Christian had been a model not too long ago so that also worked in my favor of course.  And, as if it could get any better, he chose the most gorgeous location to meet up for the shoot.  We were at this Catholic retreat center on the top of a large hill over looking the cute town of Danville nestled among the hills.  And, of course, the weather was perfect.  Just 75, not a drop of humidity, and not a cloud in the sky.  And our shoot was at “money hour,” just when the sun crosses past the harsh afternoon arch.  Obviously there was a lot working in my favor, and it was glorious.

Christian.  Luke.  You both were too fun to work with.  I was even smiling and laughing out loud all the way through my hours of editing today.  Might have sounded crazy to some neighbors since it’s finally nice enough here for my windows to be open ;).

    Great shots…they melt my heart. I’d love to hire you. I’ve got two boys and would love some family pictures.

    Christian, you and Luke look great. More than that, the deep bond of love is so evident. Praise God for the way in which He has continued to bless you and Lukester. Truly these pictures will be a monument to reflect back on years down the road, pointing to the beginings that help to make Luke a solid boy/man! You’re a great Dad.
