Avoiding the family portrait...

Family portraits rarely tell a story, and are rarely visually interesting. Handout photos from families often offer a moment the journalist couldn't be present for, but those photos are usually technically poor.

Here, I decided to do something a little different to avoid doing a group portrait and make things simple and visual.

This was shot a few weeks ago for a Living Well cover story on premature births.

Kristin and Eric Stadler are shown holding their children Kathryn and Jacob in family pictures taken three weeks after their premature birth at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin - Fox Valley.
