Coolest. Family. Ever.
When I decided to offer custom family portraits for the holidays this year, I didn't anticipate all of the fun and awesomeness that is the Corcoran Clan. Nor did I predict that by having a brief glimpse into their lives and personalities, the task of capturing the special qualities of each family member (dogs included of course!) would be so special and fulfilling.
Jacqueline's amazing sense of style and background in product development made her an absolute joy to work with, but it was her brilliant art direction that truly made this project shine.
She and her family were in the process of moving into a mid-century modern home in Charleston, which was according to Jacqueline, "Not exactly the home of mid-century style - and probably why we are embracing it so fully". Have I already mentioned how cool this family is? If not, point proven!
So, when they requested a Palmetto Moon tree as a nod to their beautiful state, I looked for a way to incorporate the symbol without losing the mid-century aesthetic....and the "Palmetto Malm" was born! The rest of the crew shine without explanation, and I feel that the overall composition highlights the sweet and easy nature of this special family.
Thank you Jacqueline, and the rest of the Corcoran Crew, for the privilege and opportunity to capture your family in a special way and all of the joy that accompanied the process. Oh, and Jacqueline, your idea for the post-move, post-post-holiday portrait was so funny I nearly shot wine out of my nose when I read it! Cheers!:)
