Toddling Around Elizabeth Park / by Zack Wussow

I don't do a ton of family portraits, but I knew Sarah's were going to be fun. Right off the bat, she sent me her favorite photos from their last family pictures, and they weren't the most perfect or idealized photos. They were the most candid, authentic photos, the ones that captured their daughter's personality.

I met Sarah, her husband, and their two daughters at Elizabeth Park in West Hartford on a pleasantly sunny November afternoon. 

The kids were adorable but, no surprise, much less interested in photos than in playing soccer, exploring the stage and the "maze" of flowers, or playing with their beagle Theo. Who can blame them? But we got plenty of great photos of the family none-the-less...

..and plenty of goofy photos as well.

That last one cracks me up every time.
