Family Show

i have a big family. it keeps getting bigger. getting us all in one city let alone one location takes talent. recently, when i was down in phoenix for the first annual lindquist family vacay, we scheduled some pictures with Promise Tangemen – a local photographer, designer, artist girlie. so on a verrry hot afternoon, all 14 of us went out into this grove – couch included – and sat through some family photos. after pulling some teeth and getting my grandma’s to smile, the immediate family member skipped off to a desertish location for a few more.

i will admit. it was wierd to be on the other side. not because i’ve never had my picture taken but i really feel different now being the object. ahh i don’t like it at all. well not as much as how it usually is.  mostly just on the one-on-ones. shoot, now i know how you all feel. i have more compassion. i think that was all the more reason to reassure me that  giving a lot of direction, being vocal, goofy, relaxed when i shoot will help the people i’m working with feel comfortable in their own skin. it’s so important to me that you do.  i’m happy to stay on the end i usually am, but here are a few family portraits to show you. i’m the girl in the blue. 🙂 i love my family but pretty soon we’re not gonna fit in one frame.
