Late in August my good friend Sheri asked if I would do family photos for her. We were fortunate to be able to shoot out on Lake Erie near Peacock Point at the home owned by Jenny Almas. We had free run of her beautiful property and we also had several hours to complete the shoot. My son Chris came with me to assist and we arrived early in order to scope out the place.
By the time the family arrived we had explored every nook and cranny and had done some test shots. I knew right away that I wanted to utilize the rocks at the shore. I waded in, luckily it was warm water but the blue-green algae did worry me a bit!
I had asked Sheri a few weeks back how the kids, all in their teens and early 20's, had responded to her idea to do a family photo session and at that point she said that she hadn't told them!
I was a little worried thinking that they would be unhappy with the situation but to my delight they were a lot of fun.
Everyone worked well and we got some great shots. This was a very relaxed family session, we had some laughs and everyone really enjoyed the setting on this beautiful August evening!
In the end, Sheri and her family were very happy with the disc they purchased. All in all it was a great experience!
