Traditions are important. They remind of us the past and give us something to look forward to in the future. They unite people. The Obremski family has the wonderful tradition of having a big family photo taken every year and they have kept this tradition for decades. I can only imagine that it wasn’t always easy to keep this tradition – kids grow, people get busy, and taking photos isn’t always on the top of everyone’s priority list. But this family has made it happen year after year and I can only imagine the joy and memories that are captured in that collection of photos.

This year, I was honored to be the photographer chosen to shoot the annual Obremski family Christmas photo! After being rained out twice, we moved our shoot indoors. These photos were all taken as the wind blew and rain poured outside and I was oh so thankful that the Obremski’s found a place for us to shoot indoors! I loved meeting each and every member of this sweet family and I so appreciated their flexibility and cheerfulness.

Linda, Dana, Jack, Luke, Charlie, Ryan, Leah, Aidan, Lincoln, Brooklyn, Krista, and Larry – thank you all from the bottom of my heart. You were such a blessing to me and I am so thankful that I was able to be a part of your Christmas tradition this year. I hope you enjoy your photos!

Luke is California’s newest licensed driver.  :)

There is just something so special about childhood friends. They just get you in a way no one else does. They know your parents, your siblings, and remember your childhood pets. Kim was one of my best friends in childhood and remains one of my best friends today. She is encouraging, honest, fun, and such a great mom. Our relationship has changed over the years, of course, but we share a sweet connection that I hope will last a lifetime. And Kim’s family … well, I adore them too. Her husband, Sam, is amazing. Thoughtful, kind, hilarious, and a great husband and father. And their son, Owen, is an absolute treasure. He was the most cooperative child I’ve ever photographed and I just love his enthusiasm and laugh!

Kim, Sam, and Owen – thank you for such a wonderful afternoon. You guys are the best and I am so blessed to have you in my life! These are some of my favorite photos that I have ever taken and I hope you love them as much as I do!

I love love love this family. Love them! Every time I take photos of them they make me feel like one of the family. It is such a testament to their kindness, their hospitality, and most of all their loving spirits. And the youngest member of the family, Gavin … well, he has my heart. How could he not with those striking blue eyes and the sweetest smile of all time? He’s only a few months older than my youngest daughter so maybe he’s future so-in-law material? I suppose I should let him get all of his teeth first before handing over a dowry, but still … a mom can dream.  :)

Weeda family, I can’t thank you enough for allowing me once again to capture your love. You guys are amazing and I just adore you! I hope you enjoy your photos!

Happy Birthday, Gavin! You are loved beyond measure!

Wow … what an experience! Hosting these Christmas mini sessions was such a joy! I can’t even explain how much I loved all of the couples and families who were a part of this special day and I am so incredibly thankful for all of the hard work that stylist Whitney Mittmann put into organizing it all! She was amazing! She took all of my ideas and made them all 100% better and added in lots of great ideas of her own! I loved the experience of working with Whitney and hope she’ll be designing lots of my shoots in the future!

Shooting seven different families all in one day was a completely new and exciting experience for me and I hope that this will become an annual event! And, the best part is that we raised enough money to send over 20,000 meals to hungry people in Africa. It was an honor to be apart of something so special and wonderful and I am once again reminded about how blessed I am personally and professionally.

Thanks to the wonderful people who made this shoot possible:

Stylist: Whitney Mittmann

Graphic Designer: Dana Grogger

Rentals: {Found} Vintage Rentals

And a very special thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of the beautiful families and couples who participated in this shoot! They put a lot of trust in faith in me and I truly appreciated every bit of it! Every single group was an absolute joy to shoot and I hope you all love your photos!
