Your family is your most valuable asset in this life; related or chosen, they are the people you cherish the most when it comes right down to it. When my families want to include their other close family members in their annual photo session, it adds such an incredible dynamic to the energy and emotion…
Some of my dearest friends asked me to come out to a favorite park of theirs to do family photos; but the day of the session, the rain was doing its off-again-on-again thing. So instead, we met up at their gorgeous home in Blaine and tried our darndest to get the best of the weather!…
When everyone is finally together again, it’s a beautiful thing. I love big families who love each other. ❤

“At the end of our lives, we’ll see it was about having fun, rather than being serious; and celebrating each of us rather than correcting one another.

“Family isn’t defined only by last names or by blood; it’s defined by commitment and by love. It means showing up when they need it most. It means having each other’s backs. It means choosing to love each other even on those days when you struggle to like each other. It means never giving up…
