Not everyone is totally jazzed to brave frigid temperatures, snow filled trees and the need for nine layers while taking family photos. The McDonald Family falls into this camp. Morning mimosas and family giggles while playing with their brood of small tykes was more their style. I joked after a week of 12 family portraits between Christmas and New Years that there was a wealth of things promised to small children in my wake to try to gain compliance or at least a straight face during photo sessions. These promises included, but were not limited to: a cookie, more cookies, extra cookies, jewelry, marshmallows, ice cream, a puppy, legos, a movie, extra ipad time, candy and a pony. I had an absolute blast capturing the candid antics of this family at their Incline Village family portrait session. Their kids were, at any given moment, awesome, hysterical or falling apart and I loved every minute of it.
