Going home for Thanksgiving meant that I was going to be able to see my whole family and meet my brand new baby niece! Since I was already bringing my camera home I offered to take my siblings family pictures for Christmas cards. Of course it had to be the coldest day of the year so far on Thanksgiving Day! I think it may have reached a high of 32 that day, but no matter what we were determined to get outside and take pictures around my uncle’s beautiful home in Connecticut. We are New Englanders, after all. This might have been record times for a family session too. Lot’s of running around and hugging to “stay warm” for pictures and we were in and out in less than 10 minutes per family! Might have been the first session I did where I did not break a sweat, too!
Here’s my sister Brooke, Dan and their children:
And here is my brother Caleb and his wife Sara and their two babies
I met this family real soon after moving here to Southport. Jeremy works with my husband at the Oak Island CG station and we had a big cookout once we were all settled in. Over the summer our husbands played in a softball league (still trying to forget the embarrassment of that season!) and Alexis and I grew really close during those evenings. During the games we talked the whole time, made fun of our husbands a little bit, and I realized that we were basically meant to be. One day while out to lunch Alexis informed me that her and Jeremy were expecting their second child! So, naturally, I jumped at the idea of a photo shoot with them so they could have some cute pictures to announce that they were pregnant. Little did I know that once I posted those pictures they would go viral! I think that last time I checked, their announcement had over 80 “likes” and had been seen by over 3,500 people! 3,500 people!!!!
So here is the Lake family at Fort Anderson/Brunswick Town and towards the end are a whole slew of ways we posed for an announcement! Love you guys!!!
