Diane, Roberto, & Marina | Family Portraits in Chapel Hill / by Annemie Tonken

This was, hands down, one of the loveliest family sessions I've ever had the pleasure of photographing. Diane, Roberto & Marina are a multi-talented crew whose creative genius knows no bounds, and I knew from the start that our time together would be something special. They showed up for our session with a Sunday morning picnic fit for a king, along with a veritable treasure trove of objects, instruments, costumes, and artifacts from their lives. They sang songs, read poetry, ate, danced, and played their instruments until the sun was high and we were all ready for a nap.

And in my nap, in my dreams, I was a parent just like these two.
