I love a family shoot. It's like showing up to someone else's holiday family dinner. There's some bickering, and sometimes family members get frustrated with each other. Or there's a child who doesn't want to "play along" and is tired or cranky. But at the end of the day, there's a lot of love and patience. There's laughter and a sense of togetherness. And at the end of the shoot there's also pictures and memories created that will be cherished for a lifetime. I get an overwhelming sense of accomplishment knowing that I helped them create that.
