Yes, it began with a tree in a parking lot. I was scouting for interesting places to take portrait shots for a bar mitzvah, and I saw this tree… I had some fantasies about how I might use the tree as a transformative element. Thankfully, it worked! You can see that the group of siblings looks like it is in a clearing of a forest, instead of in a parking lot off Rte. 9 in NJ. Then, I did similar “magic” on the whole family group… and thought it was perfect, until someone pointed out that one of the sons was missing from the picture! So, I added him in… it’s mostly believable, right?
