I was so excited when my new friend asked me to photograph her family! Her mom, brother, and sister (+ boy friend) drove over 30 hours to for a short visit and so it was a perfect chance for family photos before they headed back.
I love the photo above! You would never have known that one of the little ones was just stabbed by a crazy long cactus spine a few minutes earlier, before I had even taken my first shot. With tears and a down-turned lip, I thought we might be doomed with a start like that, but I was surprised by how quick things turned around and how great the little ones did.
