It all began on Thumbtack.com ...
Robert Klump contacted me through the gig service Thumbtack.com to hire a photographer to make family portraits over the holiday while all his siblings were around. After some texting through the service, we came to terms and made a solid plan for a portrait session the day after Christmas.
His parents wanted a more formal group portrait, so we began in the sanctuary of St. Louis Bertrand Catholic Church, where his father is a deacon. Everything went as well as can be planned for when small children are involved. They were good and smiled for the camera some of the time, which was plenty and enough!
The siblings didn’t want to use the same background, so we photographed the smaller family groups outdoors where the weather was nice but chilly. The front of the church was in the shade and made for a clean background. We wrapped after shooting the family groups, about an hour after we began.
