When on location, I occasionally come across another photographer shooting portraits but it's only happened a handful of times. Last night I pulled into the parking lot of one of my favorite places to photograph and there were at least six other photographers there. Families dressed in their best were everywhere. Either coming from or headed to their photo shoots. It was nuts! I LOVE the holidays and family cards are such a big part of the season. I'm honored to have been a part of so many family's yearly traditions and these three are no exception. Sometimes little ones aren't into it and it's so nice when Mom and Dad are relaxed and can embrace the fact that capturing their cries can be just as important as their smiles.
