We Are Family in Progress

I have officially started photographing my 30-day project and I am excited now.

For this project, I am working on a photo story of a trans-racial family living in Columbia and would like to have them share their experiences. Mr. Gavin and Ms. Mullin have a biological daughter and an adopted son from Ethiopia. The two kids are 10 months apart and currently they are both 4 years old.

I was with them at the dog park at the Twin Lakes Recreation Area. They took their two dogs, Scolly and Boomer, out to have some fun.

I was also with them at home while they were setting up bunk beds for the sister and brother.

The family is delightful to work with. Usually, younger kids are a bit hard to photograph because sometimes they are afraid of strangers and sometimes they are very aware of the camera and would like to act out a bit in front of the camera. But the two kids are none of that, which is great for me to observe their personality and their interactions before I take photographs of them.

I will keep things rolling and planning to show different aspects of their family life. So far, I have arranged with Ms. Mullin that I will be photographing their playing group with a few families, them going to the public library, and Ms. Mullin picking the two kids up from school.
