family style * gainesville, florida family photographer

every family has their own personality. and even though i only meet them for an hour or so, i get a glimpse of that family dynamic. there is something about being in front of the lens that helps me see into the window of their family life. some are high energy and loud. others sensitive and thoughtful. it's one of the most interesting parts of my job. meet the thornqvist family. despite the clouds and wind, they arrived at their photo shoot with big smiles and warm spirits. two daughters, maclaine and whitney, aged 10 and 8. one brown eyed brunette. the other a fair blonde with baby blues. although very different looking, these sisters shared an outgoing outlook and an easy laugh. and they were close. the whole family was close. i was struck by their quiet and seamless connection. they were loving and respectful and just gracious. you could tell instantly that they enjoyed being together.

here they are at kanapaha park. enjoy their sneak peak.....
