Meet the Eastern Family!... Or I should say -- "Wouldn't you totally like to meet the Eastern Family?" Dad David and Mom Deena are my kind of people -- smart, funny, quick to laugh) I was first introduced to David Eastern when I photographed his professional headshots and then counted myself super lucky to spend an afternoon playing pictures with the entire crew for their outdoor family shoot. (It's so incredibly obvious how much these two adore one another) I say it all of the time, but these sessions are special for a couple of reasons -- YES, obviously...great moments are captured but more importantly -- great memories are made. Not to be all sentimental (but it's Sunday so I will go ahead) -- how many times as a family do you have everyone "fully present"... no cell phones, no distractions? -- just unabashed quality time....nice.
It was so beautiful on the day of the Bomberger's photo shoot and I remember saying to Mom..."It does not get any better than this. Matter of fact, when the colors have become this vibrant...one day of good winds and all of the leaves are usually off the trees" Cut to me driving down to Studio B this morning and -- Oh you guessed it -- SO gone. Bye bye Fall :-( I'd be more sad but I've already got my eyes set on Turkey Dinner for Thanks Giving!
