When gorgeous mama-bear, Shondell, initially booked her family portrait session a few weeks ago, she gave me a heads up, "If you can pull off a miracle and have all 4 of us look decent in a photo, I will love you forever. We are "Chandlers"."
"Challenge Accepted", I thought.
We met at Castlegar's beautiful Millennium Park for an hour of walking and exploring. When we initially got going, Shondell's youngest, L*, was quite shy and not exactly feeling it... but she warmed quickly and definitely surprised me with her keen willingness to participate and take direction. All 3 kids absolutely slayed this session!
It was such a treat to work with this beautiful family! I don't mean to toot my own horn or anything, but judging by the resulting photographs, I think that Shondell just might have to make good on her promising of "loving me forever" because I think I got several shots where everyone looks much, much better than 'decent'.
