This is three generations of the Defrees family, part of a series of family ranch portraits that I just completed in Central Washington and Eastern Oregon. As is often the case, I had to work within the time constraints of all the parties involved. The only time that I could get the whole family together was between 6:30-7:00 am in the morning. With the sun coming up at about 7:20 in Baker City, Oregon, I knew it would be a challenge. The temperature was about 20 degrees above zero so I also had to work fast. The results prove that a beautiful family portrait is possible in difficult conditions.
