I spent a week in Colorado and Nebraska visiting with family. My cousin Sandi and her family came down from Canada, and my cousin Lee-An and her family, who live in Colorado, myself and my Nana all went out to my Aunt’s ranch in Nebraska for our family celebration. It was a gorgeous day and we got everyone together for some great family photos. I love being a photographer and love all my subjects, but it’s extra special when I get to photograph my own family.
They had a Christmas card photo taken like this years ago, and wanted a now and then photo.. Super cute.
All the kids.. including myself 🙂
Combined cousin families.
Got everybody together.. Nana, her daughter Sheila, and Sheila’s two daughters and their families… My lovely big family.
This sweet five year old really has got it all. She’s athletic, full of life and energy, and has a larger than life personality. She loved having her picture taken and came pose-ready. Even after venturing off into the playground, she still managed to have enough patience left to continue taking pictures while she was playing; what a win-win!
I spent about an hour with this precious little six month old, and she never fussed once and was full of expressions and smiles that would melt a heart of stone. Witnessing her fascination with a world that is still so new to her is one of the most exciting experiences one could imagine… What it must have felt like being that little in such a big world.
P.S. An exciting fact about lovely little Natalie… I met her before she was ever born; while shooting her mommy Meghan’s maternity photos! 🙂
