The O’Briens

Dec 9, 2011 | Family

If you want a fun family photo session, seek out the O’Briens. They are playful like kittens, full of apple juice energy, constantly laughing, and super easy to get along with. On the day of the shoot, the heavens granted us very pleasing weather—a toasty sun and very little wind. Our session took place around Federal Hill Park, in front of the American Visionary Arts Museum, and at the promenade in the Inner Harbor.

The shot above really captures the whole day for me. We were doing a well-posed family portrait, very sharp looking with attractive facial expressions. Then, out of no where—like ninjas—everyone just went ballistic (see the family awesomeness in motion). Karis slowly fell over laughing, Sophie was rocking it, Brendan was howling, and Judy was just as happy as ever. I’m not sure what the O’Briens feed their kids, but I want some of it!

Great family, great time.
