It's nice to do a family portrait in the fall! The leaves, the colors, the sweaters. We had a beautiful, cool day. It's always a challenge with any family portrait to provide my clients with a combination of the formal and informal shots. You need to get the family shot, of course, but what makes my portraits special are the in-between moments. That's why I love this shot of the two kids standing in the door. It recognizes beauty in the everyday, and it shows the inquisitive nature of childhood- being a little bit shy, but wanting to know who that stranger is with the camera.
