It has long been an interest of mine to take the seemingly mundane and sometimes overlooked subject: family, domestic life, etc., see it anew, and elevate it by the very action of pointing a camera and releasing the shutter (see work by Emmet Gowin, Sally Mann, or William Eggleston.)
This is a very long winded way of saying that working with this family on this multi-generational shoot was a dream for me. I was allowed a lot of freedom in recording what I sensed was important and hopefully forever valuable for the family. There is something transcendent about those mundane acts of showing a child a dog, exploring a backyard, and holding a baby. So, the photographs don't have to be flashy or styled because by simply existing and choosing to elevate those simply, small, (but extraordinary) moments, their stories of commitment and love to one another have already begun to be told.
