I met with Shane, Shawna and their kids on a Saturday afternoon at the beginning of November for their Christmas session. It was a beautiful afternoon! Shane is my husband's brother and Shawna was a friend of mine before she became my Sister in Law. Something different about this family is that they're a blended family. Not only are they a blended family but four of the five children are very close in age. I had never done a session with five children, with four being so close in age. I wanted the family to gel together perfectly. I think I succeeded. If I were to change one thing I would've wished for more pretty leaves. We had a few bad storms a few days before and we lost probably 95% of all the leaves. Ahh such is life! Regardless of the amount of leaves the session was a great one! Here are a few of my favorites.
