I’ve been photographing the Ruchs for a few years now at their home in Shaker Heights and these family portraits almost always take place in the fall. In looking back at all the sessions, one family member seems to stand out as the ornery one. Care to guess who? You’d think Arabella would be somewhat accustomed to being in front of my camera since she was a baby when she started posing for me. While Arie already has a strong personality, which I highly respect, she may not always agree with my poses. Her big brothers meanwhile are thrilled to give me ideas and smile for the camera. Thanks Carson and Maddox! I know I can always count on you both!
