Classics never go out of style

So I've been thinking a lot lately about the current trends in photography. Part of me really likes modern, hip images that aren't posed or refined. Images like that are fun to look at, and evoke emotion. That being said, however, there is just something about a classic, timeless family portrait that never seems to go out of style. You just can't beat a single image where everyone looks their best, and looks like they belong to each other. I don't know what the future will bring for my profession, but I have a hard time believing that traditional portraiture will become irrelevant. This family is one of my very first clients, and when we talked about what kind of session to do for them this year, we had to strive for something different from what we've done in the past, so we went very formal and very classic. I loved the whole session, and I can totally imagine future generations from now looking at these images and saying, "WOAH! Grandma was a hotty!"

Sure...grandma is a hotty, but what about how smoking grandpa was?! Look at him and that boyish grin...

I think I am going to go cry myself to sleep over this.

Love the pictures of your family Theron. I must agree that boyish grin is a classic.

Hey hot Grandma and Grandpa! You guys look great. It helps to have the person behind the camera know what she is doing! We definitely need to hook up V and R when they get older! (in thier 20's!) I love the Halloween photos too!
