My latest session, photos reminiscent of the winy city of Chicago, took me and my camera downtown to one of Louisville’s architectural gems. The main branch of The Louisville Free Public Library, where I had the pleasure of photographing the wonderful Hobbs family, is just as charming on the inside as it is out. And when your location is gorgeous inside and out, you photograph in both places (and the local church across the street)!
The beauty of the family and the intentional coordination of their outfits made this session especially charming. Each family member came with his/her own unique personality, which made the session a one-of-a-kind.
There was Candace, pretty and stylish with a Cover Girl smile and laugh that could sell products to anyone.
Then, there was her son, Jaden-cute as a button with his little glasses and toothless smile!
That kid can go! I’d click the shutter, he’d hear it, think we were finished, and before I could blink, he was gone! Zip! Zip! Zoom!
Adding to the mix was Candace’s brother, Marcellus, the clean-cut, dapper gentleman. He moved furniture back and forth (as I set up shots) and made a couple of trips to the car to get items for the ladies.
Finally, there was the matriarch, Pat, with her classic, yet sophisticated apparel and long, flowing hair blowing in the wind. Beyonce would have even been jealous of her wind-blown hair game!
Although they are all different, they have one thing in common. That is this warm, welcoming smile that could light up a room. Telling them to look at each other and smile or laugh came so naturally to them. I can tell when they get together, they have loads of fun!
Hobbs Family, thank you guys for giving me a peek into your lovely family. It was so much fun, and I can’t wait to see you guys next time!
