It was late August and I’d been waiting for the perfect night to photograph my Dad’s Oliver 1655 with my daughter’s 1855 pedal tractor. We’d bought her pedal tractor before she was born, my Dad’s tractor had just been fully repainted, and I had a vision that initially looked completely different than this.
I photographed the tractors together with his in the background before deciding to line them up. He really didn’t want any part of being in the pictures but when I asked him to be in “just this last set” he went (hesitantly) willingly. In his basic mowing clothes and her crazy baby ponytail, this moment was born. She turned to find Grandpa and he waved back to her.
