The Strait Family
December 26, 2016
What a joy it was to end my 2016 with this photoshoot! My sweet friend Becca contacted me, saying that they wanted to get family photos done for her mom’s Christmas gift. I had the honor to get to take these photos, which show three generations of love, faith and joy. I simply loved the way the family interacted with each other, and how comfortable the girls were being held by any one. I think those two know just how much they are loved by all members of their family.
Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.

This delightful couple and their English bulldog were so fun to get to know a little bit. Dave is the brother of Phil, whose family photos I did in October, so getting to meet him and his wife, Michele, was a treat. Their pup, Mack, was a total pro at posing and though Colorado weather kept us on our toes, we were able to get some lovely photos of this beautiful family.

I was fortunate enough to meet this beautiful couple through a dear friend of mine, who is Jess’ cousin. When Jess contacted me about family photos with their 6 month old boxer/mastiff mix, I was pretty excited as my family has raised boxers for years. Mary Jane proved to be a total joy to take photos of and to get to play with between shots. Phil and Jess just adore their sweet girl and it’s easy to see why. This shoot was fun and laid-back, just like the couple featured in these photos.

Jim and Amber have been family friends of my husband’s for over a decade. When they reached out to me for a quick session before Christmas, I couldn’t wait to meet their adorable little man, who was four months old at the time of our shoot. This shoot was chilly, but Nolan did great and we were able to catch some adorable smiles. It’s such an honor to have been able to take photos for their first Christmas card as a family of three!

So much has changed in just a short year since I last photographed this sweet family! They’ve welcomed a new baby girl (who is already almost one) and moved back across the country from the Boston area. It is so fun when families return to me for their family portraits because it is such a joy to see how much their little ones have grown. Imrie is just as fun and full of spunk as the last time I saw her and little Elsie Joy truly lives up to her name!

It was a beautiful fall day yesterday for the Cleaver Family photo shoot. I was lucky enough to get to work with Jamie’s mom, who is probably one of the nicest people on the planet. Through her, I got to meet this sweet little family. Jamie and I were pregnant at the same time last year, with her daughter coming just under a month before my little guy. What a beautiful family they are!
