I ran into Sunny (the mom) at a baby shower. She mentioned she had seen my photos and asked if we could do a family shoot. I had met Sunny a couple of years prior to that as I taught her son, John (furthest to the right in the first photo) at my old middle school. John was a great student and I was looking forward to seeing him again. We were a little concerned about the weather as it's properly cold here at the moment. We set the shoot for a Saturday afternoon and hoped for the best. We couldn't have asked for a better winters day. We got some overnight snow and a beautifully sunny afternoon for the shoot. Sunny had surgery on her ankle only a few days before the shoot but she didn't complain once and it was such fun to photograph her. It was also great to see John again.
