Nancy & Burt Kinerk and Family

Jon's thoughts: Around the holidays I had the wonderful experience of photographing Nancy and Burt Kinerk, their three children and spouses, and eleven grandchildren. If you have been in Tucson for more than a few years you know of Nancy and Burt. They are admirable Tucsonans, greatly involved in numerous local charities and organizations; Tu Nidito, Casa de los Ninos, and Community Foodbank to name just a few. As a family they laughed continuously enjoying their moments together. Their love and respect for each other was unmistakable. It was especially meaningful to capture their portrait in front of the home that has been in Burt’s family for years. Experiencing the closeness this family shares was such a treat for me.

From Nancy: I hardly know where to start exclaiming about our experience with Jon and our family portrait. We have a large family that we’re extremely proud of, and Jon undertook the challenge of capturing that in a picture. To call the finished product a picture doesn’t even begin to do the process justice. Jon’s attention to detail, his artistic eye, his patience…all of this and much more, produced a work of art that we proudly have hanging in a place of honor in our home. Our children also have portraits of their individual families for future memories. Thank you, Jon, for the treasures you have given us!
