Family portraits are more than just a collection of smiling faces; they are a celebration of love and togetherness. Where multi-generational family portraits show us the enduring bonds that span across generations. In Fluvanna, one family decided to commemorate a special day by capturing the essence of their family’s history. While cherishing the memory of a loved one who had passed away. This session date was rescheduled once due to you guessed it, rain. It just so happened that our rescheduled date landed on the birthday of their passed loved one.
This session quickly turned into a heartfelt tribute to his memory, ensuring that his spirit remained present in their lives. By bringing a photo of Brian to include in there full family portraits, Brian with really with them that day. We even believed that the sun flares captured in the photographs were a sign of Brian’s return. As if he was enveloping them in his warm embrace and blessing their reunion.
Nestled in the charming town of Fluvanna, Pleasant Grove Park provided the perfect backdrop for the family portraits. The park’s open fields and newly constructed barn offered the perfect setting for the young boys to run around. My approach to any session that includes young kids is to make it an adventure. They want to explore and enjoy there time, all while capturing their true innocent spirit.
The photo session took place on a spring Sunday morning, immediately following another late ight wedding for me. But that’s no real surprise. Getting to spend a few hours with such animated little guys really started my day on a high note. It was as if the universe conspired to make this day extra special, ensuring that the family’s love and happiness shone through every frame.
As the camera clicked and memories were immortalized, an extraordinary phenomenon occurred. Sun flares appeared in some of the photos, creating ethereal bursts of light. Looking back at the prints , the family found solace in these flares, believing that they were Brian’s way of manifesting his presence and reminding them that he was still a part of their lives, even though he was physically absent. These sun flares became a symbol of hope, resilience, and the unbreakable bond that transcends the boundaries of life and death.
I believe in celebrating the power of family bonds and capturing the essence of love that transcends generations. This family’s multi-generational portraits in Fluvanna are a testament to the enduring connections that define us.
