Mum originally came in not really too keen on a family photos. Like most mums she didn't really want to be in the photos. I started with photographing the girls. I could see mum watching the way I interacted with them, and how much fun they were having. She then asked if I could take a few photos of them as a family as well.
She ended up loving their family photo so much she purchased it as a large print for her wall :) and picked a smaller one to gift to each of her girls to keep for as they grow up.
I love being a family photographer for this exact reason, as the value of these photos increases over time.
