Earlier this year I got an e-mail from Australia from Josie, the aunt of one my senior portrait shoots.  She was planning on visiting family in Hood River over the holidays and wanted to set up a surprise family photo shoot.  I was all in. 

I work with Josie's sister and even play in a fantasy football league with her.  So the opportunities for me to slip-up and ruin the surprise were many and often.  Somehow I managed to keep it together though and had a great afternoon with a very tight family.  Despite four of these beautiful people living in a different hemisphere, it's clear that geography has nothing on this fam.
