In the family way 4×5

This is a bit of a change for me, family portraits: my brother, our mom, his wife, and her mom.  My brother doesn’t like getting his picture taken and hates sitting still for it even more so I suppose this tried his patience the most considering the slow workflow of large format, but I think I got what I wanted and hopefully the rest of the family did too.  I printed two of these and gave them as presents so I see them in person rather often.

The big news was that my sister-in-law and brother were expecting their first baby; the poses were all her idea (I suppose she saw them online somewhere and because it was cold outside we used the big bay window in my mom’s upstairs living room.  Looking at them now I think that the background might be a bit busy but it was the best room in the house for it.

This was me still learning development techniques and you can see it around the edges of the frame, I think this would have been Thanksgiving of ’19 but I’m no longer sure.
