Family Photo on Thanksgiving day? Sure, why not?! I participated with the Uber promotion “Uber Family Photo” on Thanksgiving day. It was a great time to photograph families at home for the holiday. It can be a hard task to gather several family members to have a photo taken. What better time to do so when you have a captive food gathered audience. So Uber contacted local Detroit area photographers to a ride along with drivers to deliver a photographer to take a family photo on Thanksgiving day. On the phone app “PHOTO” was an added slider option to choose. Once selected a driver and photographer would arrive within minutes to capture a great portrait.

My gracious Uber driver, Scott Zimmerman, arrived on time with a great welcoming smile. Scott made the time pass by with great Uber travel stories. Scott also helped carry my gear to and from each of the houses. He kept me on my 15 minute a house schedule by starting a timer on his phone. After the timer would sound he would return to the house asking how everything went while picking up the gear I had packed up. This coordinated operation made the time go flawlessly.

Everyone was extremely kind and welcoming to the service. It was actually a surprise to most of the families that someone ordered a photographer from Uber for a photo on Thanksgiving day. Yet everyone was happy to participate in capturing the holiday spirit. So much so that I was offered to stay and wait for a meal. And there was a beverage offer as well. Yet I did have a scheduled to keep. And with that I snapped a picture with a family members cell photo to post on Instagram with the hash tag “UberFamilyPhoto”.

I would like to send a special thanks to all the families that participated with not only me but as well four other local Detroit photographers and Uber drivers. We were lucky to capture some wonderful memories that will be treasured for a lifetime. And thanks Uber for asking me to participate! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving time with family and friends.

Way up high where the eagles soar, on this photographers adventure there were a few spotted. One such as American Eagle model Kelsey Knickerbocker. I got a chance to photograph Kelsey and her Northville, Michigan family the Knickerbockers in Aspen, Colorado during a destination senior Ambassador shoot. The altitudes we were at can be a challenge for some, but Kelsey took it all in stride.

The shoot flew through from early to mid-afternoon with only a few quick changes and a couple of stops due to puppies who just happened upon the location we were shooting. All in all the senior shoot where Kelsey will be representing J Singleton Photo at Northville High school went fabulously. Also special thanks to Tom and Chris Knickerbocker for the amazing accommodations at the Hyatt  Grand Aspen. The staff at the Hyatt were phenomenal and I would highly recommend a stay there.
