OH YOU GUYS WHERE DO WE BEGIN.
I realize that if you’re not a fan of Doctor Who then this post doesn’t mean much to you, which is why I made the subject line as blatantly obvious as I could — feel free to skip on over it. But FYI Whovians in the house: we have a treat for you today!
These photos by DC-area photographer Rassilon Photography (yep, named after that Rassilon) are supremely ADORBZ. Helene, who spends plenty of her time writing for Wired.com’s GeekMom blog when not behind a camera, has been friends of the family featured for years. Here’s what she had to say about their session:
When this family contacted me I knew it would be an amazing session. Being great friends of ours, I knew they had just as much a love for Doctor Who as my family. They had only asked for a birthday session for their 9-year-old daughter, nothing special. I love adding geeky or very personal themes into photo shoots. Given the Whovian nature of this family, I knew this would be awesome. We pulled together a ton of Doctor Who gear and costumes from both of our houses and headed out to do the shoot.
The mom had watched Doctor Who since she was a child when Tom Baker was the 4th Doctor. The Dad fell in love when the series rebooted, and the daughter was raised watching all of the episodes.
My family has a very similar story, husband started when he was very young with Tom Baker, I started with the reboot, and our two boys (2 and 4) asked to watch Doctor Who long before they ever even knew what a super hero was.
Is this a Doctor Who meets Say Anything reference? I DID NOT KNOW LIFE COULD BE SO SWEET.
