The Myers Family | Gilbert Family Photographer

Love this family…Love the location…Love that they all the boys (including dad) play the double bass! Here’s a little bit of trivia for you, did you know the bass is also known as the upright bass, string bass, bass fiddle, bass viol, contrabass, bass violin, stand-up bass, doghouse bass, and bull fiddle? Due to my own small stint in an orchestra when I played the cello, I actually knew all those names…except for the doghouse bass. I’ve even spent a little time trying to find the origin of that term…and can’t find it. Anyone? Guess I’ll make up my own reason, that some husband when sneaking out to go play jazz with the boys got put in the “doghouse”…and due to repeated offenses, it became known as the doghouse bass. 😉 Wonder if it’s anywhere near the mark.

Later on, you’ll more than likely see another picture of these boys, as they were very patient with me in allowing me to set up an artistic shot that I’m very excited to work on once things slow down a bit. But meanwhile, please enjoy their sneak peek done in part of the beautiful Arizona desert!
