A Young Family

A Young Family

I met this young family in Jordbro. I asked David if I could get a portrait of him and he agreed. He is a scaffold builder and love heights, so I guess that's a good combination. I figured him for a hip hop guy and that's what he is. What you can't see here is his diamond earring. When I was ready to take his portrait David wanted the whole family in the shot as the three of them are always together these days.The little guy in white is Anthony Melvin. He is three months old. The woman holding Melvin is Hanna. She's on maternity leave until November when she will go back go her job in the health care sector. She wasn't all that happy with one of David's hobbies, which was computer games, so I guess he should focus more on Melvin now :-)

I really like this but there is something strange about it. His headphone cord looks it could be a border of the image. What would the image look like cropped just to the left of the cord??

Steffe said...

It would look like he had only one arm.

The wife looks a bit hesitant, but the portrait is wonderful... did you send them a copy??

Looks like a cool dude, scaffolders have a heavy tough job - out in all weather.

I give everyone my card, and if they want a copy all they have to do is email me.
