Family Portraits

Do you make portraits of your family? I've been making casual and semi-casual portraits of mine for more than 50 years, and some of these photos are among my most prized possessions. Here are a few of them. Above is my wife Louise, at age 26. A print of this has graced my nightstand for many years. Following in order are: 

My father, Byrl T. Jenkins on his 90th birthday.

My mother, Louise Goodman Jenkins

My brother Steve.

My son Don (we called him Donny in those
days) playing in spray from a sprinkler.

A dignified PR portrait for my son Rob, the writer.

Louise and Harley.

Keep a camera handy and don't miss out on opportunities to make portraits of your family. They will be precious to you and to them in years to come.

  1. I don't make head and shoulder portraits, but I have a folder full of photos of my wife and cat doing things together.
