This precious family was a last minute session the weekend of Thanksgiving. I was contacted by the mom the week before asking if I could squeeze in a session for them. I almost said “no” b/c frankly, I really am overworked by that time of Fall and just can’t deliver anything before Christmas when I shoot that late, but their situation was different. The dad is headed overseas for work in February for a few months and they just wanted to get a family session in before he leaves. They didn’t need any gifts for the holidays, just wanted to get a session in before he leaves, and naturally, before it got any colder. So my heart dropped and I accepted. Mom is working full time, working on her MBA and has 2 kids (as you’ll see here!). I do NOT know how she does it. In any event, we had a very brisk day — very. The winds blew hard and everyones’ noses were red so we kept moving to keep warm. The kids aunt was visiting and was a perfect assistant for me! I love when that works out for me!
