  •  i wish i could rec this comment ^^^ again. (7+ / 0-)

    my parents sacrificed to buy a school photo.  for many years of my childhood that's the only photo to document it.  

    the first 'real portrait' i ever sat for was when i was on my own, in my twenties.  i had no experience.  no idea what to expect.  the photographer asked how many changes i'd brought with me.  i didn't understand what he meant.  he said, 'changes of clothes'.  hmm...you mean you can get your picture taken in different outfits?  he also had different 'sets', some of them outside!  who knew that you could get your picture taken against so many backdrops and in so many different surroundings?  

    all my photos were taken with the same pair of bluejeans and blue sweater, but boy was i proud to give them to my parents!

    the portraits that KCBearcat and his friends are taking could be the only photo documentation of entire lives.  such treasures!  it's a great project and i thank all those who are involved.
