On the Thursday before last, I had the pleasure of photographing the three "squirrelly" but adorable children of a good friend-of-a-friend. Though now I must admit, I consider her my friend as well. It was a lively session and so much fun! These kids have such personality and a natural vivaciousness, apparently handed down to them through generations of "Tarter-ness," as I have been told. I am grateful for the opportunity to have had this experience with them, especially as they were my first official non-Asian subjects (or part-Asian or married-to-Asian)!
