The Pennell family has been working with me for a few years now. It’s always such a treat to see their smiling faces. This year they wanted an urban environment for their photos – we shot right outside of my studio in Butchertown – and we had to work them in quickly. Two days after we made these images, Aaron underwent (successful) surgery to donate a kidney to someone in their church family.
cue the tears, y’all
THAT’S WHAT THIS IS ABOUT, YOU GUYS. Seriously. We spent some time chatting, let the heaviness of the atmosphere linger, then pushed it away and set out to capture their gentle and sweet fun-loving family. Because, the what if’s. Because, today could be the best day.
This is not a job to me. It’s an honor.
