Too often we stop taking family portraits once our kids become tweens.  There is always a reason not to, but we overlook the reasons we should!  These years are just as important as when these children were toddlers.  They will one day want to remember this time with you and showing these impressionable brains that THEY are the most beautiful art you could ever hang on your walls has such impact!

A family portrait session was even more important for this blended family who don’t always live together.  Though their visits together may be brief, their love and connection isn’t!  I am so glad I was able to capture these before their busy lives scattered them across the country again!
