What a beautiful family!  When you blend together two families, there are usually bound to be issues and kinks.  I’m sure there are some in this group as well, but when I took their family photos, you would have thought they had been together always.  And with a new little one on the way, it will give this couple a round number of six.  And it’s a girl!  Good thing, because big sis is a bit out-numbered. It was quite a humorous session.  With 15 mph winds, a temp high of 45 and no sun, you can imagine the chill that was in the air.  But we made the best of it by keeping the cars running and doing shifts.  Mom and Dad, just kids, whole family, just boys, etc…  You get the picture.  And it didn’t hurt too much either that I had a package of chocolate sandwich cookies in my car.  Hey!  I know this brood and what it takes to keep them on my side!  I, like most, am not above bribery …

I have one blood sister and six sisters-in-law.  None of whom did I get to choose but would have if given the opportunity because I love them all dearly.  But Claire is a sister I have been able to choose. We both moved to our community around the same time and were alley neighbors.  Our friendship grew as time passed and now I consider her a sister.  In fact, my husband and kids even consider her and her kids extended family. It is always a privilege for me to capture her and her kiddos with my camera.  It’s not always easy to work out our schedules, but once we do we have a good time and I get to shoot some of my favorite little people.  Tell me that these four are not the cutest family you have ever seen.  I dare you.
