The season is about to turn for the Balcombe family as their oldest child graduates from high school this week and heads to Baylor University in the fall. They wanted a special portrait to capture each family member’s unique personality; a portrait that would tell the story who they are and of their first 18 years together. What we created for them brings a piece of their scenic, north Texas ranch back into their beautiful, Frisco, TX home.
Visiting the ranch in November to plan the family portrait session, Dad recounted stories of fishing in the pond (and of his daughter’s ring that is still at the bottom of it), camping with his son and the wild pigs that would visit them in the night, and how he and his lovely wife built the fire pit so many years ago that their children would spend countless nights around.
These stories will live on in their memories, and this portrait will remind them of those times, forever marking the last season in which the Balcombe family all lived under the same roof.
We are truly blessed at J.Ridout to tell stories of the families and their children who step in front of our camera and to turn that image into a a beautiful piece of art that is a lasting heirloom.
