Another darling Hockey Family. The Vernon Fiddler Fam. This was a couple of months ago--expecting a new baby. Don't you wish you looked that good pregnant? Not fair!! Coming soon...a sneak preview of the new baby...
Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that the Coyotes have been KILLING it this year. With crazy franchise issues and a brutal schedule they have, nevertheless, managed to lay waste to their competition. No doubt, these guys are BIG and SCARY on the ice, but put them on a couch with their wife and kids and you'll see an entirely different side.
The Shane Doan Family
A family pic for the kitchen.
Dad and His Boys - NOTE: If you are the Coyotes Trainer--look away--no Hockey Players were harmed during the photographing of the Doan family!
The Kids - We hung 20" matted prints of these together--buttah!
Teach 'em to play rough early on--future NHL players in training.
To know this family is to love them. Yes, they do have 9 kids (the extra one is a son-in-law) and no, they are not a blended family. All of these kids belong to 2 amazing parents. 2009 saw their oldest daughter married (see here). And tomorrow their oldest boy heads off to the Missionary Training Center before his final destination of serving a 2 year mission in Argentina. Congratulations to Hunter (and condolences to Mom;) It was a gorgeous day to shoot with amazing clouds (rare for AZ) and with the help of the Chimera 7' Octabank--ya baby--the light was good too!
This dad was a regular old sweetie pie with these girls...one at a time. When we handed him all three at once for the "Dad with the Girls" photo, things got a little dicey. Love the expression on M.'s face (the toddler on top); she's having her doubts about the sanity of this idea.
In 2006, I photographed my assistant Jenn and her family at their home (see below).
This year, we decided to go it one better and invite the increasingly-famous videographer Cameron Trejo along to capture the true essence of this cool fam. Enjoy the show and if you'd like YOUR family to be ROCK STARS, just give us a call!
This family traveled all the way from Washington state in the middle of August just to get their photos taken. (OK, their dad was coming for a conference anyway but it sounded good right?!) They are an amazing group, very loving and committed to one another. Future supermodels all.
