it took me by surprise
this old house and these old feelings
walked round and looked inside
familiar walls and halls and ceilings
where I’d dream and plan
every moment of sunshine
this was my whole world
it was all I knew
like the hull of a seed
this old house cracked wide open
as I grew
This family is very dear to me. It’s hard to know where to start, other than what I always say–it is a great honor to get to photograph families in their own homes. You read some of the reasons why over here. These boys (even Champ, the boxer) have such great parents. I loved getting to watch them play and just be together as a family. There was lots of running, lots of biking, lots of bribing with candy, lots of kisses, and almost everyone got to ride on the yellow tractor. Love you, Ropers!
