back to my roots

There is so much that I love about this session that I don't even know where to begin. The people, the colors, the laughs and the smiles! All of it!! It makes my heart happy.

When my brother in law and his adorable family came out for a visit we took full advantage of updating the family photos. You see the family had grown since the last time we saw them. SO glad you joined the family Carl!

The other reason I loved this photo shoot so much is that it reminded me of why I began doing what I do. Like anything in the world that has trends, so does photography. I felt like I was getting caught up in what everyone else was doing and thought I might need to do what so-and-so was doing also...wrong. It's so exhausting and makes you forget who "you" are.

So this is me...bright colors and all. I know that these intense colors don't work for every session and location, but here it did. It took me back to my roots and felt like home. I love to be home! Home is familiar and good.

Veronica and Greg thanks for such a fun time. Your family is beautiful and we loved visiting with you. Next time we come visit in beautiful Hawaii.
