The Benseman Family

A week ago I got an email from a girl named Hanna, asking if I could take some portraits of her family before she left for a couple of years in the UK. Said and done, the following weekend I came to her house to meet up with her and the rest of the family. And what a family. After five minutes, I almost felt part of it. They were so friendly and bubbly, and really affectionate with each other. This, I thought, is the definition of what a "family" should be like. I was there for a mere 40 minutes, but it put a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

More "posed" shots than I'm used to, but I think you can see their energy in all of these pictures.
