Al & Kristens Family Photos

This weekend the family got together for general conference, and I promised my sister in law Kristen I would take her family photos. Before we left, we got a couple of quick snap-shots of “Grandma” and “Grandpa” with all of their sweet grandkids. We got the exact same picture this time last year, so we’re making it a tradition:

After, we went to the beautiful orchard by our house to take Al & Kristens family photos. The last time we were here together, I was taking Kristens maternity pics, and now her little girl Kalenn is one already, and Kristen is expecting another baby!! It’s just CRAZY how fast things change, so it was good to capture their cute little family dynamic of five before it will quickly change again!

After taking a few quick pics the orchard, we travelled down to desert aire to take some photos along the beautiful trail that has just been put in along the columbia river. The sage brush are in full bloom {that’s about all the beautiful wild flowers we get out here in the “desert”} and the sun was going down, casting that beautiful golden sunflare I love so much. We really couldn’t have picked a better day to take photos in October–it was SO sunny and hot. In fact, our kids were just swimming outside the same weekend! So we had unusually perfect weather for this time of year!

The kids were excited to be outside exploring and having fun, and did not want to do photos–so I took Delson and kambria for a walk by themselves, and told them we were going to give their mum a really special surprise by taking some beautiful photos to make her really happy, and they were SO sweet and co-operative! They really wanted to do that for her, and I could tell how much they adored her! I love this sweet little family, and i’m so glad I got to take their family pics!
