I have been wanting to photograph my friends, the Calloways for awhile. This year I decided that I would just force myself upon them and tell my friend Erin that I wanted to take her family’s pictures for her birthday present. I was glad that they said “yes!”. The Calloways are known among friends for the no-smile family photo. Their kids are genuinely trained to do the opposite thing that every other kid is asked to do in front of the camera. When I raised my camera, instead of a fake cheesy grin, they all went straight faced. We did some family portraits in the way of that Calloway tradition, and then I also took a few more one afternoon just hanging out with Erin and her boys. You are loved Calloway family! It was such a gift to me to get to spend this time with you all.
Started our time with Ford showing me a few pieces

John kept his foot on Erin’s this whole scene that everyone was talking.
John told me at one point that the color of his eyes was like the inside of a blueberry. Unfortunately, these blueberries were green inside. 😉
