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…

These lovebirds are celebrating their first anniversary – and what better way than to get all wedding-ed up again and go have a photo session?? I had so much fun with this. You guys are a riot and I like you! 😉
There is just something so incredible about being invited into people’s lives repeatedly as a photographer; to peek in every year or so, marvel at how their children have grown and appreciate as their relationship deepens and evolves. I am always honored to be invited back.
One of my favorite families that I have the joy of seeing every year – from their wedding to now raising their two adorable little monkeys. You guys are amazing!
