Alexandra Peters is a petite, beautiful, soft-spoken, mother of five children under the age of twelve. Family is everything to her and having a Masterful portrait created in a sacred place was her top priority this summer. She gathered her husband and five children, then drove an hour and a half to arrive at my studio. Unruffled by the drive, they arrived in good spirits. As she introduced me, I was astonished by the sweet personalities and polished manners of her young kids. With grace commanding, she gave everyone their portrait clothes and they were dressed and ready without a fuss.
When we arrived at the beach, it was my turn to be in charge. Time to compose a lyrical portrait; timing critical, so everyone would have a nice expression in the same 125th of a second. When composing the family portrait, I was awestruck at how easily these joyful little kids engaged in the creation of their family portrait. Even though four of the five kids looked just like their father, they all possessed the light grace of their mother. I couldn’t help but wonder if they inherited her soft personality traits or if it was learned. Nature or nurture?
I hope your summer has been filled with many rich family moments that will become stories to tell. Always remember the summer of 2014 with a portrait created in a magical setting. Please call upon me soon. phone 650-726-1412 email email@example.com
