Say hi to the Ryans! I first photographed big sister Annie for her 1st birthday, and then little sister Charley when she was a month old, but this is my first time shooting the whole family together! We met at the Stony Brook duck pond on a beautiful day to take family Christmas photos. I've taken pictures at the duck pond on many occasions, but this particular time is going to stick in my mind for quite some time. Near the end of the session, I crouched down to take a photo of the two beautiful girls playing together on a boulder. That's when dad Patrick said to me "uh, heads up, there's a swan really close to you". I turned around......and that majestic, elegant swan nipped me right in the butt! Even as a pet photographer, this was definitely a first. (See the last photo in the slideshow for a mug shot of my avian assailant, who to my knowledge is still at large). Despite this rude interruption, we got beautiful shots of a very loving family that I hope they'll treasure for a very long time. Enjoy!
