Donna, Michael, Mason, and Madelyn

Donna and I first started talking about scheduling this shoot over the holidays towards the end of last year. We had to reschedule a few times due to kids' colds and work conflicts, and we finally met over the weekend to capture this family. Dad got pulled away for work, but mom didn't reschedule this time, and I'm so glad she made that choice. Now she will have these beautiful memories of her with her kids at this age, and we have motivation to include dad next time!

We overcame the challenge of coordinating all 3 kids to look at the camera at the same time with some music and creative posing.  You wouldn’t know it from these pictures, but Madelyn was fussy in between most of these shots.  Donna was right there comforting her and positioning her back in front of the camera, and her persistence paid off.  We even managed to get a perfectly executed sunset silhouette. Success!
