I moved across the country a year ago and am starting business from scratch. I didn't know a soul when I moved here and am only a part-time, seasonal photographer anyway, so that makes it harder. In the meantime, I had a great time getting some portraits for family members at a reunion. These were not the most planned out sessions, and the weather was brutal, but I'm pretty happy that a few came together nicely.
1.) My sister and her husband. They can't have children and adopted a little girl (you can see her under thread, "4-year-old"< and they hope to adopt another ASAP and are hoping that someone is looking for great parents like them.:
2.) My sister and her girls.
5.) You can see more of this girl in the People section under my thread, "Snake Charmer."
6.) This is my brother's family. He and his wife have had two children together. One has Down's Syndrome (T-18) and the other has Edward's Syndrome (T-21.) Edward's is much more life-threatening, but their baby is doing remarkably well and I even got some shots of her smiling (which isn't easy to do.) Just lucky. I am so proud of how these parents, not only chose life for their children, but have showered them with love and the best care they could ever hope to receive. They thrive as a result and are huge blessings to the whole family who adores them both.
8.) Fierce Mama.
