How lucky am I to launch this blog with this sundrenched family session? Not only is this crowd outrageously good looking, but the location was a beautiful beach front home nestled in the Omaha sand dunes. And to top it all, these loving parents were allowing me to share in and document the triumph of their youngest over a year of medical uncertainties.
The beautiful tall blonde in the centre of many of these shots is my friend Anna. Anna and I have been friends since long before either of us had kids. And now with four of her own in tow, she knows more than most about the importance of family. So when she asked me to capture her extended family (her husband Cam's side), over the holidays I of course jumped at the chance. I have to say though, the enormity of the task did not escape me. Corralling seven children under the age of six, on wind swept sand-dunes, in full sun?! There was only one thing for it - embrace the chaos and enjoy the ride!
The result is this series of sunlit family images. Chaotic and imperfect and yet absolutely full of love and life and magic.
Thank you so much to this incredible family for opening your home and allowing me a glimpse at the love and laughter that abounds there.
