I love it when clients become friends. This family wanted a very casual portrait—not being a stuffy person myself, I was more than happy to oblige. We shot several combinations in their yard, but I kept coming back to this stand of trees. Finally, on a hunch I arranged them standing amongst the trees, and boom that was it! While meeting with Traci, we looked at this shot in Photoshop and I played with the sepia tones. It was perfect for their portrait and they loved the results!
