I love that my 4-year old asked me the other day, “Mama, do you know what Mi Familia means? It means My Family.”
This is My Family.
I had a really fun session last weekend with the Busch family. It was sunny outside, but that didn’t mean it was warm! The Busch family was so wonderful, you’d never know that their bones were probably freezing that day.
Last weekend, my daughter entered the Citizens Races at Hurricane Ridge. It was beautiful, and it was a great day to go up to the mountain. Both our girls had been taking ski lessions there, and they had so much fun eating skittles, drinking hot chocolate, and of course, learning to ski.
How did my daughter do? She did great! She got a silver medal! Granted, there were two girls in her age group, but still! We couldn’t have been more proud.
Here’s my family after the race.
Wintertime in the Pacific Northwest can be unpredictable, to say the least, so flexibility is a must for outdoor portrait sessions here. We had planned on a family session last month, but that’s when we were hit by the big snowstorm! We managed to time in a dry-ish session with beautiful overcast light.
My dear great-grandparents-in-law have sold their house and are moving back to warmer pastures (Las Vegas). With the current real estate market, we were hoping to have them around for a while longer, but they received an offer they couldn’t refuse and are getting ready to get back to more family and more sunshine.
As we were finishing up our last supper together, I thought we could try our own version of the infamous painting by Leonardo da Vinci (with a little digital paint job for authenticity). Why not, right?
This is my family. We’re going to miss you, Bruce and Rosemary.
Can I just tell you how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful part of the world? We have a beautiful piece of heaven here called Lake Crescent, and when Rose suggested having portraits taken there, I thought it couldn’t be more perfect.
Have you had your dose of cuteness today? Well, check out these little guys.
I met a wonderful family, the Grassers, about a week ago. They are such a nice family. They have a lovely piece of property in Sequim, which provided a perfect backdrop for some family portraits.
Alisha is just a natural beauty, inside and out.
Mom and dad are a lovely couple, so nice and easy going.
I absolutely loved their property. I wanted to pitch a tent in their back yard, it was so pretty!
And Joe is the cutest little brother, with so much fun, positive energy.
