So, I just need to have a big sister moment. This is my baby brother Matthew and ahhhhh isn't he just the cutest?! I CAN'T believe my little brother old enough to be a senior!!!! I'll never forget the first day he rode the bus, I think he was in 1st grade and I sat with him cause that's what big sisters do. The bus made a weird noise and Matthew looked at me and said "is the bus going to blow up?" Hahaha! Such a boy! I'll also never forget the day he came home from kindergarten with his school pictures, held them up to my mom and said "is dis my smile?!" He had the silliest little grin across his face in the pictures and was definitely NOT his normal smile, but it was pretty stinking cute. He still his. So here we go. Matthew's Senior pictures. I guess I'll have to get used to saying "Matthew's Senior" anything now....sad, and exciting.
Last week We went to grandmas house for Easter, and took some portraits of our own families. Something that doesn't happen enough :) We also did some portraits of Madison is my sweet 15 year-old cousin who will be graduating 8th grade this June. We thought it would be the perfect time to document her life right now with her best friend, Tanner. She's been working with our Uncle Mitch Barnes to train Tanner for rodeos and they both have come such a long way! Weddings, surprise proposals, epic 4th of July bashes, and over all "growing up" have all happened at Grandma and Grandpa's. I know that years from now we will all look back at all the amazing moments, people, and memories that were captured on camera here.
We chose to photograph these images on a Contax 645, with Kodak Portra 400 film. We really love the warmth and realness that the film shows, and how much we value each individual image.
Rachel and I had so much fun on this shoot. Its so amazing to work with a staff and owners that bring so much personality and fun to "work". Check out our favorite local coffee and yogurt shop, we love these guys! Can't wait to get tons of film back from this!
