Family Pictures: The Tree Discourse

The one thing my family and I have in common is that we don’t like being on the other side of the camera. When it comes to taking their pictures, I know I’m on borrowed time. When we got together, I thought, “I’m a photographer, and yet, I have very little pictures of my family!” So, when we decided to stroll through downtown Deland before having dinner at my favorite restaurant, the Cress, I grabbed my trusty camera. So this is where the tree comes in. The dialogue went something like this:

Family: Oh, this is a nice spot. Here Deb, shoot away.
Me: You can’t stand there because it’ll look like a tree is growing out of your head.
Family: Oh for crying out loud, who cares? Just take the darn picture.
Me: Ok, how about standing behind the tree or better yet, let’s go over here and…….
Family: Are you finished? Let’s go shopping.

I can’t help but smile when I think back to that family discourse and how it’s the little things like that that make my family so endearing. As the years roll by, I know that life passes very quickly. At the end of it all, it’s all about our families. Yes, even our furry ones!

My Sister Loves to Shop.  I visit a mall only when it’s necessary.  I should probably go more often but I would rather be online with B&H Photo

When I see shiney things like this, my mind always wanders over to fashion photography.  Hmmmm
