Anytime I photograph a big family I kind of wish I had 5 or 6 kids. This family was no exception, in fact they might have made me wish it more because they could not be cuter!
I don't do a lot of directing during a shoot, but I almost always try to sneak the couple away for a few shots and usually direct them to take turns looking at me and each other. I did not have to do any of that with this couple, who just celebrated 20 years of marriage, they were so great together.
It was a really hot day and they were troopers. Because of that we did a lot of walking and found some wonderful spots.
