My Family Photo! Finally

So I've been getting more and more emails and messages about the family photo that I did for my family because supposedly there are a lot of people that didn't get to see that coverage on the insider. So here is the photo of my great family (at least I think there great)... The photo is small because the blogger template column is not very wide and the picture is pretty panoramic so I'm sorry about that.

The story of this picture is that my family wanted to do a new picture now that we have two new additions to the family, Shelby and Emery. So we went to this field and I saw these weeds and I thought "this is perfect!" but I think that my family thought I was a bit crazy. We got out and I put the camera on a tripod but I forgot my remote to get the camera to take the picture so I had to run back and forth for the 10 different shots we took like this. I'm sure it was kind of funny to see if you didn't know what was happening. Despite the embarrassment of running back and forth it turned out great and it even had airtime on the insider.

Me (Brandon), my HOT wife (Shelby, The best addition to the family by a long shot), Don, Dad (Donny because you dont know him as dad only I do haha), Mom (Debbie...ditto), Josh, Chris, Emery, Melisa, Jeremy, Dylan

Awesome picture! Wish I could click on it to make it bigger. You're work is very well done. I enjoy it. I enjoy your blogs, especially the Jan 30 blog in "Be loud, but not obnoxious". Really nice pictures. Did you take photography courses or just learn by trial and error? I used to be a very amateur photographer and have recently started taking pictures again. I have so much to learn . . . again! I don't miss the dark room, though! I LOVE digital!

How sweet for you to show everyone the family photo. I was able to see this show and your dad is so proud of you and the rest of the family.

Thanks for sharing such a beautiful photo of the whole family.

I do love your concept in the field - the picture turned out great (luckily you have a family that is very patient - 10 tries - oh boy)....

Your work is beautiful! And it isn't just because the subject is so easy to look at. All the photos are wonderful, but the one I love the most is the second one. The jacket over his shoulder with the great smile. He may not like his smile, but it is gorgeous.
You are truly gifted. I look forward to seeing more in the future.

My Dad and my husband are both photographers and you are amazing!!! My Dad has been taking photos since the early 70's and he worked for a newspaper. My husband does freelance work. You are very good and I have had to look at many many photos over the years for my Dad and my husband.

Brandon,
I agree with you 100%...you are blessed with a "great" family. I love the pic. I wish we could make it a tad larger. It shows your talent and creativity. Keep up the great work and keep taking chances with that camera of yours!
You should try to start a site like Jeremy Hall's. I love his photos...and that site is so easy to share!
