family is the best // portraits


Connections. They are my favorite. My sister took an online writing class and had Diana for her teacher. She and I have become better friends over the last couple of months as her love for photography has grown. When she asked if I would drive up and visit and also take her family pictures, I was so excited. The perfect opportunity to road trip and do some photography. 

Her mom and dad, brother and sister, and her little family of four, all gathered for a family shoot last Sunday. It was very chilly, as in cold cold cold, but they rocked it. We headed to Diana's parents house afterwards and spent the afternoon eating, talking and just being. It was quite nice. They are a family that gives and loves to give. It was so fun to meet them and get to know them, and photograph them.



And aren't they a gorgeous family too? Sheesh! 








(this is diana and her adorable family. stay tuned for pictures of a family + couple shoot with them. they have an awesome story.)






Asher and his mama.

Jumping is always fun. :) 


I love new friends. Honest to goodness.
