Ogando Family Portraits, Walker Art Museum/Sculpture Gardens, Minneapolis, MN

This next family is absolutely gorgeous - she's from Spain and he's from England...and they are raising bilingual girls! It was my first time capturing them and something I try to all the parents before the shoot is kids are kids...some days they are up for anything and other days they aren't. The day of your family portrait shoot you don't get to pick it. (Just like we didn't get to pick to not having swarming mosquitoes at our family photoshoot!) My job as the photographer is to take the time I'm given and capture them on that day. Sometimes it's all smiles and other times it's mixed with tears. Both are a part of our lives as parents and both are memories we want to capture for the years to come.

I love the emotion that was captured in this shoot.
