Linda’s kids were all going to be in town. The same town. At the same time. And that’s a big deal. For this occasion, they needed a family picture, and I was so thankful that she called me to take it.
It was somewhat of a dreary day, and the temperature wasn’t one that invited a drawn-out shoot. I think I could have worked with them for just a few hours longer, because I had the easy part (and mittens). On a hesitant count of three, fourteen winter coats were thrown into the designated area, just outside my field of view. Somehow, the smiles remained.
Pete, Linda, and family, thank you for being willing to wear short sleeves in less than ideal conditions, for having such great attitudes, and for seeing the importance of togetherness. I hope you enjoy my favorites!
