Vintage Film Portrait Friday: The Reeve / Backo family, 1000 Island family photography!
For the last few years, I’ve switched back to film for my portrait work and at the same time, added in weekend destination day-in-the-life photography experiences. First there was Alabama for Emmy and then the Thousand Islands for the Reeve / Backo family. Both are past wedding photography couples of mine! It is such a joy to spend time with my wedding couples again and see them raising their families. By the time the wedding process is over, we feel like lifelong friends.
So, naturally when Steph asked me if I could plan a weekend to visit their new island home and capture their new baby girl, I said “YES!”
“Oh, wait, when do I have a whole weekend free??? ”
“Um, how about this weekend? Oh, wait, nope, I can’t get away…”
Well, it finally worked out 4 months later and it was lovely. I tell ya, these guys have their system all worked out! Two dogs, a kid, water, coolers, supplies, me… all into a little boat at dusk… to get over to their little island.
It sure was awesome to wake up to a peaceful sunrise the next morning…
The weekend was full of family, food, drinking, hearing the history of the island and cabin and seeing the progress they are making with all of the needed repairs.
As you can see, it was a lovely and relaxing weekend with Steph, Howie and their little peanut! After a busy wedding season, it was a treat to slow down and photograph photo journalistically with my film camera!
Are you interested in day-in-the-life photography? Let me know and together we will brainstorm the what/where/how of a fine art photography family experience.
