I think a lot of photographers can be a little bit snobby about things like family pictures, but they are wrong.
I have been photographing the Bates family for almost 5 years now and it has been such a rewarding thing to be a part of this familie’s life, even in a small part, for that amount of time. Documenting the growth of a family is a really beautiful and important thing that I am honored to be apart of. I completely understand that it isn’t for every photographer, but it is important work that should be respected.
