The Stahl family

 

Had the delight of working with the Stahl family… the last family shoot of 2013 for 9art. Whitney set up the session after winning a certificate from a silent auction at a Joplin event earlier this year, and she was very excited to get her family in for some fun pictures.

3 boys (Devon, Aiden, & Kian) at varying points of teenagedom: and these parents are handling it beautifully. Guess it helps that these seem to be pretty awesome boys.  After our planned location fell through due to unforeseen circumstances, we decided to stick around the studio for the shoot, and it turned out really well. I’ve wanted to shoot some pictures in the random empty room across from my studio for the last 3 years… it’s a slightly grungy, but also kind of cool spot in its’ own way, and these guys are a very modern family and fell beautifully into the rock star look. As always, I’m shooting family pictures as if everyone is a band… 🙂

I had so much fun working with these guys. Got to talk chess (dad Martin is heavily involved with the Joplin chess club, which I didn’t know existed til now), ‘the Hobbit’ ,and indie music with them, and we enjoyed my hipster playlist while we worked together. I don’t play it for folks often OR get to nerd out about movies with clients as much as I did that morning, so I really appreciated our time.

Enjoy!

went outside for a bit… a very short bit, considering it was freezing out…

Ended on a goofy note… the Stahls’ favorite activity (aside from watching movies together, of course) is playing games, and these ‘tug of war’ shots symbolize that spirit of competition. And, probably, teenagers vs adults in any household…
