The request was simple… mom and kids wanted to give dad a large canvas portrait of all the kids for Christmas. The task not so simple. With just 2 weeks until Christmas, a crazy schedule for all the kids, and the delivery time for the canvas there was only one day and one hour that I could get the shoot completed. Oh yeah and I had to include the two family dogs. It was a Thursday and sundown was 5:30pm. All of the kids had different schools so I found a field near their house. We started at 4:00 pm and went quickly through all the scenarios that I had planned out. With dark fast approaching and the little one growing very tired, we were almost out of time. The very last image that I shot ended up being the one they chose for the canvas!
The canvas was delivered a week later and I met the mom to hand it over. She was very happy and dad was extremely surprised on Christmas morning 🙂 He liked it so much that he drove to his office on Christmas Day to hang it up. What a great family!
