This family is such a blessing to my life.
This is yet another amazing family I met through my husband when we started dating. To watch them grow is such a joy, because there need to be more kind people like them in the world. So when they asked me to photograph them at their Thanksgiving get-together, I was of course delighted. What a privelege to have these awesome people in our lives.
The boys asked me right at the beginning if we could take a photo of just the guys, and then they whispered in planning about what poses they wanted to do. ;)
We had a tougher time with the girls. The littlest was understandably tapped out and so over the whole photo thing.
I think it was nearly 13 years ago that I met this family. I started dating my now-husband in November 2003, and through him, I inherited some of the most amazing friends. He had grown up with this family, I think pretty much most of his life, and Lee and Karen's son was one his best friends, and through my husband, he became one of my friends, too. Years later, I started hanging out with Lee and Karen's daughters, we became friends and I was even honored to be a bridesmaid for one of them. And then Lee and Karen's son met an awesome girl, and so I get to be her friend, too! How lucky that because of my husband, I get to be friends with all of these amazing people! They are such a close-knit, kind and wonderful family, a great credit to Lee and Karen. It's been four years, 2 grandkids and 1 daughter-in-law since their last session, but it was just as much fun. I feel honored to have been invited to capture a bit of their time together. ♥
I had the great privilege of working with Erica and her beautiful family for the first time last year, so when she asked me to photograph her husband's entire family, I of course was pumped. They all did an awesome job, and the kids were all so sweet and polite. Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your family. It was wonderful to meet all of you!
