A fun Family Compass

“Families are the compass that guides us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.”  Brad Henry


This was my second time photographing the Menapace family.  We met in the fall of 2012 when their daughter Lana was still a baby.  We had a fantastic family portrait session that I remember fondly because of the love this family showed for each other.   The pictures were so great they still make appearances in my portfolio.   This time around, they signed up for their first mini shoot and chose the Mothers Day Friday session in downtown Denver.  For props, they packed some brightly colored sunglasses and used them to jazz up some of their shots.    The kids were a pleasure to work with and I was blown away at how well they all listened.  I am the youngest of four and I can not imagine my parents doing as well as these two did for their session.  Not to mention us kids!  They Menapace family had fun and as a result, so did I.  Thank you guys for coming, it was great to see you again.
