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.
