Another one of my high school friends, Val, contacted me a few weeks ago and asked me if I would take some portraits of her family as a Christmas gift for their mother. Of course I accepted! This was a large family of seven total including two dogs! It was wonderful, though, because they all had so much energy and were so very nice to talk with and be around. I haven’t seen Val since my wedding in 2006 and I haven’t seen her family in over a decade. Thank you Val for asking me to be your photographer. Below are a few that I loved the most from the day. Enjoy!
