For the past two years I’ve been a vendor at the annual Albany Berkeley street fair called the Solano Stroll. This year I offered a special photography deal to announce my new services of adding kids photography to my business. This past weekend I had the chance to meet one of the families who found me at the Stroll and spend a fun morning playing (and Sibling Photography ) with three siblings; Lincoln and his twin sisters, Fiona and Allison.
We met at the beautiful Arlington park in El Cerrito. I have found memories of playing at this park when I was kid and taking tennis lessons there, so it was especially fun to meet this family at the park.
Lincoln, the oldest sibling had no interest in being photographed. I’m fairly certain he thought it would be boring like school photos. I had to assure him he would have fun. His little sisters were more interested, especially Fiona who has plenty of personality and was a delight to photograph. So we played on the play structures, fired up the bubble machine, looked for crawdads in the pond and just acted plain old silly.
I’m happy to report that all the kids had a blast, got a couple of fun gifts and let me know that it was much more fun than school photos!
