I really enjoyed photographing families last year. One of the last sessions I did was in October with Robin, Will, and her pet hens- General Tso and Potpie. Robin and I met in 2007 when she had just started The Clinton Hill Blog and I had just landed the job at PACC. We’ve kept in touch all this time and I was so thrilled to visit the family at their beautiful turn of the century home and snap a few pics for her.
Seeing Robin’s home life, I cant imagine knowing a couple that lives more sustainable and I just adore their backyard. It’s very quaint and makes for an ideal place to take photos; loads of textures (brick, wood, straw fencing, etc.) and moderate northern exposure…
…doesn’t Robin look lovely back-lit? this is one of my favorite pics! It was so tough getting this photo because i began cracking up when the hens decided to run back and forth in the background- lol.

The hens, love blueberries!
The moment Robin picked up General Tso, the hen immediately showed off her profile for me : )
I hope, if Robin decides to do a lifestyle blog, that this photo is used as a banner. The wood in the background is reclaimed from an unwanted shed the couple found on the internet. They took it apart and used it against the divider. It makes for a unique installation and conversation piece!
I just love a happy ending, don’t you? Thanks for having me, Robin, Will, Potpie, General Tso and their sweet puppy that passed away this week- Mallow.
