< lots of love >

I got to meet up with this amazing family on Christmas Eve for a big family session. It was really incredible to me how all of these 9 siblings (and a couple of spouses) got along so well! And I don't mean just good manners in front of a stranger, I mean they were all best friends. I got to take pictures for the oldest sister's family a while back, and I guess that should have given me a clue as to where her great personality came from, but holy cow! They seriously inspire me! And these grandparents just can not get enough of their grandkids (or their kids). I want to be a family like this when I grow up:) Thanks for inspiring me and letting me spend some time with you on such a special day.

< christmas time is here >

It's Christmas time! And I got to take pictures of this cute family again, and this time in front of the Christmas tree! This cute boy has grown up so much, and I'm so glad I get to be a part of documenting that. Merry Christmas, everyone!
My little girl had to sneak into a shot or two ...

< play time >

This family definitely knows how to have a good time together. They are really good friends of mine, and that's actually something I've always admired about these parents. They really play with their kids and have so much fun themselves. This mom is totally super mom that does everything and is always busy, living her life for her family, and just loves life. And both parents are totally smitten by their kids. And just looking at these pictures you can tell that is completely reciprocated.

For our photo session, we got to go to this gorgeous house that the kids' grandpa just built. We had so much fun running from room to room, discovering all of the cool and unique things in each room. I totally fell in love with this place. Thanks for letting me be a part of your fun-filled day!
And can you believe this boy's gorgeous curls? I always tell him mom that she can't ever cut them!

< couldn't resist >

I was finally getting around to finishing up these pictures, and found a few more I just had to share. Thanks again! Can't wait to meet your sweet little girl and take some pictures of her in a few weeks!
