Like Grandmother like Granddaughter

Filed under Uncategorized • Written by Doug Loneman @ 3:32 pm

Four years ago I photographed a wedding and out of the day came an image of the groom’s mother laughing. This month I photographed the bride and groom who are now a family with a very cute daughter.
Out of that session came a photo of the daughter laughing just like her grandmother.

I hadn’t thought of the image of the groom’s mother for years but suddenly it was there in her granddaughter’s face.

Placing those two images in one frame was a great surprise Christmas gift for the grandmother and a gift I’m sure the family with love for years and years.

We continue in between children, family and wedding shoots to work with commercial clients.

We have had so much fun working with Nancy at Fancy Flours this past year. We call her our Martha Stewart of Montana.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Season of Light

Filed under Uncategorized • Written by Doug Loneman @ 5:34 pm

This year sadly, two of our clients passed away from the same family. Our hearts go out to them.
I was reminded by a granddaughter how happy she was to have inherited the photo of her grandfather and her son that Doug had captured only months before.

Recording a family through generations is a true privilege we take very much to heart.

In my father’s family there was a family portrait taken in 1925. Though my father’s family was very poor, the photo was a priority for my grandmother Stana, who I was named for. She saved for that photo for months I’m told.

That great photo hangs in the homes of myself and my cousins and links our children to the stories of their immigrant great grandparents, grandparents and the bonds that hold our extended and treasured clan tight today. We see ourselves in our parents, siblings, children.
When the living light of our loved ones fades, the meaning of a photographic light truly is timeless.

In the season of holiday and family reunions, take many photos, print them and cherish what each individual brings to the legacy of our families.

Wishing all a season of light!
