A quick mini session in Miami.

On New Year’s day Lesley and I made an unplanned drive from Charlotte to Miami, spending 4 days with her entire family. It was awesome, such nice people. Everyone went out of their way to make me feel welcomed and comfortable during a tough time. We had a nice sunday dinner at her aunt’s home and almost all of the family was there (some were at the Dolphins game, watching the end of the season). I had brought along my cameras, of course, and the light was right and the setting right, so we decided to take some photos of all the kids who were there. Fun times! We used Stuart’s old ford truck, 1965 custom cab, that had the perfect patina for a quickie shoot like this. Some of the kids warmed up right away, others took some time but in the end everyone was not wanting it to stop. The only reason we did is that we ran out of sunlight! I did get to use the new 5d, so these files are pretty awesome. Thanks to everyone who helped and to all the kids who wouldn’t stop smiling!
