It is not flesh and blood, but the heart which makes us fathers {and mothers} and sons {and daughters} ♦ Johann schiller ♦ Chapel Hill Family Photographer

Meet Jin.  He brought his Mommy and Daddy along for a photo shoot on a lovely and crisp autumn afternoon at the art museum.  One might have thought they were a group of models selling the idea of a real family.

Well, they could have sold anyone.  But they weren’t trying.  They were just being.  Themselves.  It was quite a delicious experience.

I met Kelley at the offices of Senator Dole.  We were fighting for the rights of children who needs parents to actually have them.  At that time neither of us had children so it was cathartic to be called upon a couple of years later to photograph Kelley and David’s FAMILY!  Our journeys took us to different countries in Asia, but it was clear that the Red Thread that connects those who must be connected was working overtime in our cases.  Jin just belongs in their arms and they belong in his.  All I had to do was fire the shutter while he was just being Jin.  And look what I got!  My camera was on charisma overload, but I just couldn’t stop shooting.  I think I wore him {and Mommy and Daddy!} out.

Later at Christmas, I pulled out the mail from the mailbox and saw this postcard with a gorgeous family on front, but I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what they were trying to sell.  When I got inside the house and looked closer, I realized it was Jin, Kelley and David and it was their Christmas card to us . . . . they were selling SPECTACULAR . . . . I’ll take about a million dollars worth, thank you!  The first photo below is the stunner from Christmas!
