A Family with Ingenuity, Family Photos
When in pursuit of one’s dreams and aspirations, set backs, roadblocks and dead ends are to be expected. These are the necessary catalysts to awaken the ingenious that lies within. Like someone rightly said; Success is often disguised as seeming failure.
It was such an honor to spend time with these history makers. I remember the first time I walked into Alex’s office, I couldn’t help but notice his family’s library of unending books. More interestingly was the fact that these books weren’t just dust collectors as is the norm with many, but mind legos used by his whole family. This was made evident when Austin and Vince, showed me their little boxes which contained their savings and handwritten budget plans for future expenses like the black panther lego set they want for Christmas. Totally normal right?. When I listened to Alex and Tanya talk about some of the severe challenges they’ve had to face, and how they pushed through, I couldn’t help but be humbled by their experiences. So for a family photoshoot my objective was to effectively use my camera to capture the ingenuity (inventive and innovative culture) of this family.
