Janet originally contacted me to take family photos of her and her son as a special surprise gift for her mom -- a lover of sepia photography who is celebrating a very special birthday this year. In fact, each part of the trio is celebrating milestone birthdays this year within days of each other. Janet's surprise for her mom was almost foiled by GrandPoppa's unexpected arrival on the farm. No matter though: we worked "Poppa" in and the results were magical -- better than what we had planned. We started out with Mother-son photos but ended up capturing the mutual adoration between grandfather and grandson -- a feeling that is both timeless and old-world. What better gift for both mothers? Happy Birthday, Janet, Carter and Mrs. Hawkins! xox
