Over the holidays my entire family was in Arizona, (at the same time!) so we booked a family photo shoot to document this season of life. After a fabulous recommendation, we hired a wonderful photographer to take on our crazy challenge of 8 adults and 4 little girls under the age of 4, and the sweet and talented Erin Evangeline was perfect for the job. She was very understanding in our tough moments, hands on with all of the little girls, and she was great at shooting not just posed moments but candid moments as well. Some of my favorite pictures are the innocent candids she caught in the unprodictable moments. Erin, thank you so much for jumping right in and making our photo shoot not only enjoyable but a masterpiece of our life… as we know it.
Enjoy some of my favorites photos from the photo shoot
In the photos you will see of my parents, my older sister’s family, my younger brother’s family and my family of 4. Sadly, we lost a beautiful piece of our family in September of 2015. My brother’s daughter, Abigail, passed away at 8 months old. This photo shoot was a very special and emotional time for our family and we didn’t want to take photos without the memory of her powerful, short life. The red balloon was a special piece of our photos as a remembrance of her. Always in our hearts and on our minds… we love you Abby.
