I am so thankful that this family, good friends of mine, asked me to take their pictures again this year. I can't even explain what a special opportunity it is to bond with families over the course of a session, it's just fun! Dad noted that I am a serious over-clicker, but with good reason: the pictures that elicit the most from me are the in between shots, there's just something special about capturing life as it happens.
Taking family shots, everyone is looking at me and I accidentally lost their attention by pointing out, "Oh look, turkey's!!", it was still totally worth it.
