The Hartley Family
As is the case with many of my favorite people, I met the Hartley family through Girl Scouts; their oldest daughter is summer camp BFFs with my daughter, Isabel.
During our photo session pre-consultation, Sidney (Mom) expressed that she wanted the background of her photographs to reflect their family, not just to be a pretty backdrop. After some discussion, we fell on having her family session at the University of Miami’s School of Architecture (Go Canes!), where Stephen (Dad) graduated. Sidney works for UM, which makes it even better! I love it when there is story, even in the background. Being able to show the kids photos of themselves at their parents’ school and workplace will be so cool as they grow older.
I feel SO, SO grateful to the first families I photographed, especially this family. It was so much fun walking around the school and photographing the girls and their parents. Thank you, Sidney!
