This family photo shoot was two years in the making. Last time we tried this we got snowed out….blizzard. We were going to try to squeeze it in before church, so early early, but it snowed so much we had to call it off, church was canceled, everything! Reschedule set when all kids and spouses would return for Christmas. Would you know….three days of forecasted snow, first real snowfall of the year! But, since blizzard conditions weren’t predicted we were determined to make it a super fun SNOW SHOOT! And I loved it! It was freezing cold, so we took turns with couples rushing out for their poses, then rushing back in and tag-teaming the next. It took a while for my fingers to thaw out wrapped around a warm mug of perfect hot tea as the big kids set up their next activity, some board game at the kitchen table. I love being with this family. Every one of them. And they love being with each other. Memories of that day still warm my heart. Thank you for welcoming me into your home.
