Inquires roll in daily through the summer.  A large percentage of them being families visiting Whistler looking for family portraits.
However it’s not everyday that I get an inquiry that’s as intriguing as this.

“There are only three of us, but we are a difficult family to photograph.  Not attitude-wise; we just generally look pained in photos…
One 6 (almost 7) year old boy.  He likes legos, dirt, Star Wars, and has a weird obsession with hoary marmots.”

Well.  Not only is that an intriguing challenge but I myself have a love for the Marmot! And upon finding out there was actually a SONG and promises of lederhosen?  How could I resist?!

Despite the immense pressure, the Marmot song did not disappoint, and neither did the lederhosen.
