Is 5 Offspring A Full Quiver?

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, January 3, 2008

Ok let’s be upfront,… I have 5 sisters and 1 brother.  But we live in an era when it is not as common as once to have larger families.  Once upon a time there was a terminology that talked about having a quiver full.  Often wondered how many makes up a full quiver?

But hat’s off to this family – they all seem to get on really great.  Certainly they  all connected fabulously during the photos. Well I suppose you would when you have 14 kids between them,… and probably still going.  Thing is the grandparent’s were extremely popular with the grandchildren.  Now that does say something.  Relational.  That’s what it is.  Gotta have it.

Be that as it may, this extended family shoot has been fascinating to process up. Tonight I took a bit of a break and did up two pics – the guys and the girls.  In a day or so I’ll do them with their respective partners.

Frank’s Progeny In Kings Park

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 10, 2007

Someone once said, … before me that is,… life is a journey; sometimes the pathway is paved in gold and sometimes a herd of cattle has been there before we travel over it.  Someone else said that… life is not a sprint,… it’s a marathon.   So I suppose in the end it’s not really what we do in random moments but rather what we leave on the pathway for those that follow us.

When I was preparing this photo I thought for a moment or two about Frank’s progeny. Many years separate them.  They will ultimately travel their own journeys.  But Frank has, and is still, sowing into their lives.  His legacy is not really what he does or how much money he makes but rather has he prepared them for their own life journey?  I reckon he must have done something right – both seemed pretty well balanced and relational to me.  And they certainly relaxed as we took these formal pics in the surrounds of Kings Park.

Want somewhere to go with your family and relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the Aussie bush in the midst of the bustling city? Maybe a picnic one summers evening.  Go to Kings Park.  And if you take me along with you I can take some fabulous relaxed photos at the same time. Give me call – contact details on the ABOUT page top right.
