Featured Family : Julie & David

On July 1, 2007 by Aimee
Julie and David, Apex residents since 2006 and parents of 6 and 4 year old boys, joined Aimee at the Maynard Pearson House on Olive Chapel Road one hot, early afternoon in the spring of 2007.

This family of four is like any other family… they work, go to school, attend church services, go on vacations, and enjoy spending time with family and friends. But … Julie, David and the boys are world travelers, with Apex being their fifth residence in six years, and they have lived on three different continents no less.

Julie owns her own digital camera, and has likely taken thousands of photos throughout the family’s travels, but she chose professional photography because she’d been thinking about having a family portrait done for some time and wanted a great look.

They chose the Maynard Pearson House because of its historic significance, Julie’s a fan of outdoor settings and because with so much travel under their belt, finding and utilizing a unique, personable, inviting setting was a must!

We asked Julie what she intended to do with her portraits.

“I have my portraits on my walls, framed for tables around the house, at my husbands office, given away as gifts, and archived.

Think about the number of Grandmas and Grandpas, Aunts, Uncles, cousins, brothers, sisters in your family … then think about having lived around the world. Julie has many family and friends to whom to send photographs.

“I had not thought about digital files until Aimee mentioned them to me in one of her packages. As much as I want to send [prints] to everyone, it was the best option. I have e-mailed several of them to friends.”

In looking back over her session, Julie noted, “David and I both enjoyed that Aimee was very personable and easy to work with. She listened to our ideas and offered suggestions. She took some impromptu or candid shots of the boys that turned out really gorgeous.” Like this one of the boys, inadvertently creating a beautiful image simpy by attempting to keep the pine needles from sticking into their bare feet.

Julie, David, boys … thanks for taking the time out to think back through your session, to talk with us and to be our first featured family!
