The weather was sweltering, and the air was filled with swarms of gnats. Yet, when the client requests holiday photos to capture precious moments with her little family, you must set aside distractions and focus on the task... I also enjoy a good challenge. This family was an absolute delight to photograph! We had to work fast because this little guy moved quickly! I was determined to get him to smile or laugh and was willing to do anything to get that out of him, running, jumping, running backward, stomping leaves...he was a tough one to crack. But in the end, we got some wonderful photos that this family can cherish forever.
