I was so pleased when my friend, Desiree, asked at Christmas about a gift certificate for her mom, Audrey. I was at her home about a year and a half ago for an adoption celebration for little Isaac, and I remember seeing many, many frames of her family on the walls. It didn’t take much to see what she values the most. It’s a real treat for me to photograph grandparents with families, to capture the special love that they have for their littlest loves and the connections they have with their adult children.
This is a fun way to do family pictures, a mix of groups and then playing together. After we took some pictures of different combinations of the family (with me acting like a crazy woman and balancing balls on my head and the moms digging for snack rewards), we played. The family (hard core fans of the Green Bay Packers) put on their jerseys and I let the kids heave the ball at me, then we walked to the park where we had a great time climbing all over the equipment.
Audrey, I hope these pictures always remind you of this fun season in your life!
