Charro | Family

November 10, 2008

Her name is almost as cool as mine!

Of course I’m just kidding!! Isn’t Charro a great name!

Never pick up the phone when you’re kids are playing with very loud musical toys!! I did it just a few days ago when Charro called. I thought she said ‘Cheryl’ who is a good friend of mine that lives in Vancouver. I went on for quite some time until the conversation got so confusing I had to stop. I then realized it was Charro, another photographer here in St. John’s, who was asking me to photograph her family. Though we personally know each other I figured she would think I was loony after our conversation.

She must have forgiven my craziness because we went ahead with our great photo shoot just few days later.

Photographing another professional photographer has the potential of being slightly intimidating.  They will know how a photoshoot should go and it’s impossible to woo them with my big camera…their’s might actually be bigger!  Charro and her family set me at ease right away.  The great part was her kids loved to be in front of the camera, they posed for every shot and ‘mom and dad’ knew exactly how to move and look for the light. All I had to do was be creative!! That mixed with the last beautiful day of the year and I had a great time!!

    Thank you so much Charla, we absolutely love them! After 15 years of being together, we finally have pictures of our family together that we can proudly hang in our home.

    We had a ton of fun with you, and you understood exactly what we were looking for in a family portrait. Thank you so much for giving us something that we as a family can cherish forever.

    Great photos! I wish I lived in St. John’s to have you take pictures of my own family. Though we wouldn’t be nearly as easy to work with as my sister was for you. Of course, she would be upset with me even suggesting working with another photographer, these photos have me seriously thinking about it! If you are ever in the Toronto area, you might have extra work while you were here. Fantastic work!

    Thanks Trevor. As Charro said to me, and I fully agree, it’s always nice to see a new perspective. Nomatter how great you are the next person sees the world differently. So, with Charro’s blessing, next time I spend more than 5 hours at Pearson I’ll let you know 😉
