the Jensens ... family photography by an Enid, Oklahoma photographer

What makes this portrait "art" is the circular flow of the eyes, from mom, dad and brother to the new little sister, and then from her, looking back at dad.  Even the curve of the arms on all four create another curve, a flow for our eyes to follow. This does not just happen by accident, or by shooting a ton of exposures and hoping for the best. It has to be set up with even the foot position of the parents taken into account. But above all, happy, loving expressions made possible by a controlled enviorment in the camera room make this an heirloom for the decades, a treasure in the years to come.
