So beautiful it looks like a painting! The people, the pooch, and the peaks are all perfect. Jon has a way of bringing out the best in everyone... and yes, even Mother Nature! My favorite part of this shot? The little dog's attentive expression! I'll bet Jon was barking at the dog (he's been known to) in order to make him alert like that!
"Why we love Tucson"
Jon's thoughts: Bruce and Janet Fohr have enjoyed Tucson as their home for 30 years. Their son Rob met beautiful Christine at Seminary school in Kentucky and a few months prior to their wedding they asked me to create this family art piece. It turns out we have a friend in common and they asked these wonderful people if we could use their "back yard" for portraits. As you can see they have an amazing view living right next door to Sabino Canyon. Their daughter Emily insisted on adding "Peluche" to the portrait and since I love dogs, I was delighted! The whole family has a great sense of humor and we laughed nonstop. One thing I have always enjoyed in creating portraits outdoors is finding a direction of light that accents the background while flattering my clients. We waited until the glow on the mountain was just so.
From Bruce and Janet: "What more can we say than 'thank you' for the outstanding job you and your Jon Wolf Photography studio did in producing our family “heirloom” portraits? From our first consultation with you, to the incredible location, to the enjoyable photo session — you were amazing, including your special, unique way of photographing dogs — to our final meeting in which you helped us select just the right frames, you truly brought out the 'best' in our family—including our son, Rob, his wife, Christine, our daughter, Emily, and her little dog, Peluche. We really think that you produced a masterpiece and some beautiful individual portraits of our entire family. You are the consummate photographic art professional." -Bruce & Janet Fohr and Family
