The Story of a Family | Westchester Family Photographer

           “Without thinking much about it in specific terms, I was showing the America I knew and observed to others who might not have noticed. …
            I am a storyteller.”                                                                                                                                 
            ~ Norman Rockwell


My daughter wrote this quote out in pencil on a blue 3×5 index card.  She gave it to me, saying that she thought I might like to use it in my business — because “it’s kinda like what you do.”

How awesome is that???  She knows I like quotes, yes.  She also knows that I’m a Norman Rockwell fan, yes.  But she gave this to me because she saw something similar between the way Norman Rockwell approaches his art and illustration and how I approach my photography.  That makes me SOOOO happy.  I do love to tell my clients’ stories — to tell the simple story of their “right now” to their future selves, by giving them photos of the kinds of moments that fill their days right now. I guess I’m a storyteller, too.

Today’s story is not about America — in fact, the dad in this family is French.  It’s a story of a family in Pelham with two little girls, a little dog and two cats, and what the moments of their life look like right now.   Enjoy!
