This family has a Polish heritage and the needed a traditional Polish portrait of their youngest daughter. When mom told me that they had six children my mind began racing with creativity. Mom knew that she wanted portraits on a black background, and had a clear vision in mind.
When the family arrived at the studio, we had cookies and refreshments ready for them. With so many kids I knew we would need to work fast and have something to occupy them while they were waiting their turn. It was great time and mom got everything she asked for.
