This particular family knows how to have fun together. I first photographed brother and sister two years ago when I was just starting out. This time, the whole family showed up, including a new little sister.
The kids played, romped, twirled, swung, laughed and cuddled their way through the session. And near the end of the session, with their encouragement, I tasted a “fiddlehead” — the brand new curled bud at the tip of a fern’s new-growth. It tasted like spinach. Earthy and green. Except it was crunchy. (And then this week at Trader Joe’s, I actually saw of bag of fiddleheads in the produce section!)
This family will soon be leaving Rochester for new adventures out west. Together. Because that’s what matters.
