This was part of a Christmas present for their parents. The challenge was to find a way to show three different people being themselves at the same time. I’m told this one did.

Shortly after moving back to Tullahoma, I had the privilege of capturing the extended family of Dr. J. Herbert Hester, Pastor First Baptist Church in Tullahoma.

A couple of years ago a friend told me the story of his brother gathering their whole family for a portrait, including his two brothers, grandparents and all of the grandkids. Everyone was excited as they gathered at this brother’s home… that is until it was announced they were heading to one of those big department stores in the mall. They knew they were in trouble when the kid running the place had to open up a three-ring binder to read how to pose that many people. Well they all got shoved together in the tiny room and everyone could see the camera… but the camera couldn’t really see everyone.
Welcome to the land of snapshot chain photography.
Because of copyright laws, I can’t show that image, but this friend tells me no one in his family ever displayed the photo in their homes.
What I can show you is an image I had the priviledge of taking for a family gathered to celebrate a 50th anniversary.
I invite you to show the world that you won’t settle for mediocre photography any longer!!! SAY NO TO CHAIN STUDIOS! SAY NO TO LIFELESS PHOTOGRAPHY! SAY YES TO TRUSTING YOUR MEMORIES ONLY TO REAL LIFE PHOTOGRAPHERS!
