Picture of a Family

I had a family session today (a re-do, the last session was Horrible, and all my fault) and I'm happy to say we got some good results. This is not a typical portrait but I think it shows the spirit of this family and to me that's the most important part of any session. A couple more from the session can be found on my Photo Blog.

Amazing back lighting. Love it. I actually think it would look really great cropped square (like right below where you have your watermark) and printed on canvas... If only it were MY family portrait!
