Last week, our friends Shannon, Ryan and Claire were kind enough to invite us to a portrait party at the home of one of Ryan's relatives. The photographer, Karmen Lindner, was great but sadly Gavin was not in the best of moods (OK, it was a pretty bad one, actually) and she was not able to take many pics. Karmen was kind enough, however, to e-mail me a photo she managed to snap of Gavin and said I was welcome to use it.
If she can manage a photo this great in the middle of the crying and snotty-nosing (hard to tell from the picture, but it was happening), think of what she can do in better circumstances. She's got some stuff on her Web site about doing portrait parties. I think it's a great idea and kind of fun because everyone gets something they really want, great pictures!
