Martha & Ben are my children and Jake & Maddie belong to my brother, Bill. This picture was taken towards the end of the summer 2012, in Union City, Michigan for my Mom’s birthday. She had spent a ton of time over the summer babysitting Jake & Maddie while Martha & Ben were constantly stopping over to visit or to eat! What an appropriate way to end the summer and give my Mom a birthday present that she definitely did not have!!!!!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Family
Here is the picture from the very top of this post. Ben is slightly tall and almost didn’t fit within the frame of this photo!
Today’s post is about the word “quirky.”
Definition: different from the ordinary in a way that causes curiosity or suspicion <the waitress styles her hair in a quirky way that always gets her remembered by customers> from the Merriam-Webster online dictionary.
My first thought of “quirky” of some of the funny little things I do or say on a photo shoot…
Such as attempting to pose in a abnormal way to show a client how I would like them to pose. A good example would be this next photo of McKenzie… her mom actually said that she had more fun watching me try and pose during the photo shoot!
Then there are times that I get sidetracked! This next picture was taken during a photo shoot with my daughter. We were playing around with a mirror found in a garden area at Southern Exposure, located in Southern Michigan. I was attempting to take some pictures of her and her reflection from different angels when I discovered myself in the mirror!
Then there are always the silly faces… or playing that some of my seniors might decide to do!
My ultimate goal on a photo shoot with a senior or family is to have fun! I want to capture their true nature and character. What they love doing and what life and family means to them. Sometimes this leads to some “quirky” moments to get the job done but I am okay with that!
Daily Prompt: Photographers show us “Quirky”
Everett Michael Bain – Born March 28, 2013
A couple months ago the UCHS Varsity Baseball Coach asked me if I was willing to photograph his son when born. I was hesitant in agreeing to do this since I had never done a Newborn Photo Shoot before!
Everett Micheal arrived in our world about 2 week early and a little bit smaller than anticipated. Weighing in at 6 lbs and 12 oz Everett Micheal was a little small for some of his newborn outfits! So instead of having a Newborn Photo Shoot… we did a 1 Month Old Photo Shoot!
My favorite photos from this photo shoot were the shots that I took of Everett and his Mom, Holly. The love between a Mom and Child really shows in these next 3 photos…
Congratulations to the Bain Family on your newest addition to your family!
And a huge Thank You for having me in your home to photograph your family!
