The Karkouki's: A Family Portrait

It's amazing how time flies and how fast children grow up. I started photographing the Karkouki family several year's ago. But I wasn't until this session that I realized how each image captures over the years told a story of their growth and maturity. No longer little boys, they are growing into young men - smart, creative, energetic and the oldest much taller than me.

 

On this rare day in December, the weather warmer than it had been in a while. We decided to take advantage of the sunny day and shoot at the North Carolina Museum of Art. The image above sums up just how beautiful it was to photograph this family again and to have a chance at documenting the boys, growing and become their own unique selves.
