    Three generations of a family

    i-9pgr3kc-LRecently, I’ve had several jobs where I’ve been photographing grandparents, parents and kids – often families that are here in Santa Fe on vacation.

    It’s great to see the interaction between the generations, and making images of groups that don’t often get together is a particular privilege – marking an event special enough that they called in a photographer.

    These images are from a recent session for the Miles family, with two brothers representing the older generation, one of their daughters (Emily)  and her husband representing the middle group, and their young son as the third generation.

    There are more limitations for a session like this than one where the main focus is on the children. There’s less scope for changing locations, and more of the shots have to be set up, but constraints often lead to some creative solutions, and Emily and myself were happy with the way the images turned out.

    I love the thought that these will form part of the family history now, and maybe in 70 years time, that young boy will come back and another Santa Fe photographer will get the call to photograph the next three generations.
