Let me introduce you to an amazing family. The Bucks are talented, kind, entrepreneurial minded, and well…super smart. In fact, my husband says Jamis intimidates him (which is saying something coming from my 6’3″ confident man!).
Tarasine is an awesome homeschooling mom to these wonderful kids and an eternally patient piano teacher to two of mine. And on a side note, this particular piano program is seriously amazing. My kids were playing quite complicated songs almost immediately and are now creating their own compositions with chords and rhythms and everything. Where ever we see a piano they immediately plop right down and play “Ode to Joy” (their current favorite) and everyone can’t believe they’ve only been taking lessons for 5 months. If you’re in the Canyon County area and would like more information, please go to Tarasine’s website or Facebook page.
Well, as you can imagine, the Buck family’s home is filled with interesting books from the classics to the modern, and after just a couple piano lessons my kids began asking if they could borrow some. Tarasine graciously obliged, and said, “It’s always been our fondest dream to live in a library…well, now I guess we do!” It’s quickly become a tradition that as soon as the lesson is over my kiddos are right at the bookshelves trying to decide which one to “check out” this week.
So when it came time to discuss their family portrait session, this (below) is exactly the kind of scene I pictured for them! The older kids completely immersed in their own novels with the littles on mom and dad’s laps, doing what they love, surrounded by this beautiful landscape.
