Ever since Riker Lynch was announced as one of the dancers on the new season of Dancing with the Stars, I have been meaning to blog about my time spent with the Lynch family. So, after hearing my kids cheer when Riker received perfect tens, yesterday, I thought today was a good day to write my post.
On September 19, 2014, I headed out to the Rosemont Theater. I was hired to photograph R5 mingling with fans, hanging out backstage and performing on stage. Over the 4 hours that I spent with the family, I found out they were not much different then other families. Mark Lynch (dad) kept the show on track and things moving smoothly. Stormie Lynch (mom) made sure the kids ate and even helped them pick out clothes for the show. It all felt oddly familiar.
Before the concert started, the band met with fans for a Q and A.
Before the band went on stage, I was able to get a few individual shots of everyone.

Before I headed home, I walked through the crowd to snap a few of the stage.
