The Gossett family is the type of family photographers love. They were fun, easy going and wanted to do some silly and fun stuff. We even re-created a picture from when the kids were small where they were all in direct sun and squinting. Too funny!
We started at their beautiful home and got some with it in the background. They have only been there a year and are restoring it to it's original majestic beauty. What a fun project!
Then we went to the old train depot in Canton. I am really glad we got their sign with their name and 'established' date in some of the images. Really gave it meaning.
Mom mentioned it had been a long time since they had a professional session and I couldn't help but think the next time they all do this will likely be when one of the kids gets married.
I knew when I went to their home to choose their images it was going to be tough. Mom and Dad loved their images and really worked together to pick the very best ones for their wall.
I loved getting to know them all and being able to be the photographer who did their session after not having one for so long. Mom and Dad went on vacation between the session and the big reveal of images and took a day trip to Isle Mujeres as I told them how much fun I had there when we went to Cancun. Getting to know my clients to the point I can call them friends is so rewarding!
