It's Fun to be Family {Centennial Family Photographer}

This family wanted to be part of the mini-sessions I did back in the Spring, but a member of the family was really sick.  We finally got together the other day for a quick...but super FUN session!!
I have to say....I love a family where teens/tweens will still be goofy with their parents!!



I can't remember exactly what mom called this, but it was "follow-me-and-be-silly" walk!!



I believe the question asked was...would you rather be eaten by a shark or trampled by an elephant?  Dad didn't think either sounded great!!




Thanks J Family!!  I love spending time with you!!

Down By the Beach {Parker Family Photographer}

I photographed their senior (Class of 2015) the other day and this family figured they'd get in on the action!!




Evidently, dad doesn't have a "duck face"!!








Ahhh...sibling love!!




Thanks E Family!!  You are all wonderful!!!

Class of 2015: Jenna {Parker Senior Photographer}

Meet Jenna....a California girl at heart, who feels totally at home on the beach!
She is also really fun, deep and full of faith!!





















Jenna, it was fun to hang out with you for a couple of hours!!  I wish you all the best for your senior year...and as many trips to California as your parents can afford!!!

Growing a Family {Parker Family Photographer :: Adoption Photographer}


Families grow in different ways, don't they?  We grow bigger, taller, louder, more full of love, and add to the members of our tribe.  How we do that takes different forms too.  I got to hang out with a family who multiplies itself through adoption and by spreading their arms in openness to add a birth mom to this thing they call family!!



The whole tribe together...







Big sister blew kisses to this new baby brother!!!



Aren't dads the best??  They play crazy and are so silly!!









Perhaps it's a different form of family than some of us have ever seen, but I can promise it has all the elements - laughter, love, deep respect, joy, and a little craziness (just to keep things interesting!!))

Thanks S Family!!  It was an honor to photograph you all!!
