9 years of photographing their family.


13 family photo shoots (I went back and counted). 

When you're related to someone, sometimes you're stuck with photographing the same people over and over again... :) 


But with these cute faces...


I'll choose to be stuck with them any day! 


Especially when your nieces and nephews look like this!! ;) 

(No joke, these two photos were taken just a few seconds from each other. Why settle for perfect smiling photos of your kids when you can have ALL the emotions??) 


Oh my dear, sweet Baileys... let's keep this a yearly thing, ok?? :) Love your family so much!

When I photograph a family I've never met before, there's always a big case of nerves beforehand. 

There are so many unknown factors... will the weather hold? Is it too windy? Too cold? Will the kids like me? Will I make a fool out of myself? (The answer to that one is always yes!) :)


I take a few deep breaths to get started, and jump in with both feet. 

Then I start to see it happen. 


Little by little, they start to show me pieces of their life together and their personalities in the most beautiful manner. 


And then by the end we're all worn out, laughed out, and snuggled out. 

And I realize I had nothing to be worried about at all. 


Becky and Trevor, YAY! Thank you so much for taking a risk with a brand new photographer and letting me and Sunil get to know you and your kids. Nobody froze, and we all made it out alive!! :) Enjoy the photos, and Happy Thanksgiving!
