I was so flattered to be asked to do Caren & Sam’s family portraits since Sam is a really talented photographer himself. No pressure! When they showed up for the shoot, I couldn’t get over how handsome their boys Chris and Carson looked in their little matching polo shirts! The big trick for this shoot was trying to get Carson to crack a smile. I was pulling out jokes left and right and even at one point was saying “stinky duck butt”. I know, I know, really professional. Well, Chris was cracking up, but Carson kept looking at me like I was yesterday’s news. Finally, challenging the boys to a silly face competition and heading to Hamilton Park for a race did the trick. Sometimes, boys will be boys!

There’s the smile I was looking for!
