I don't usually do family photography, and certainly not family photography on short notice during a holiday, but I was so charmed by the Henningfelds that I couldn't say no. And I'm so glad, because they were such a goofy, lovely family that reminded me so much of my own when I was growing up. The grandparents had just recently moved and they wanted to celebrate their first holiday together in the new house. They welcomed me in and were unabashedly themselves, allowing me to capture some of my favourite photographs to date.
