The Furniss Family

I had so much fun photographing this family on Saturday! We had a lot of fun trying to get Timothy to look at the camera during the family portrait. So, I think I'm just going to use one like the one I posted here since it was a chaotic process anyway! All four kids are adopted...Timothy (11 months) was a local adoption, Jenalyn (16) was adopted from the Philippines, and Alex (16) and Kati (12) were brother and sister from Russia (from the same Russian orphanage as David and Daniel in my last post - they were all friends). I'm probably not going to include the image of Kati and the Chihuahua, but I thought it was pretty funny! I'm going to go back in a couple of weeks to get more images and to conduct the "interviews". I think the images of Alex in the "library" are a bit dark. Let me know what you like and/or don't like about all of these images. Ideas, suggestions, improvements...all greatly appreciated. Thanks!

the photo with the dog bothers me.. it is either the camera shake or the focus

Yah, that's why I'm not going to use that one. I have others that are much clearer with the dog, but I just thought this one was funny.

i think both of you are wrong...i think the one with the dog is great..there is a strange sort of vanishing point thats created in it and i like that...though i cant see it fitting that well with the others...

I love how you are photographing these families. I can tell that they are very comfortable with you and that you are connecting with them. It is the most obvious with this last family. Great job I can not wait to see them all together
