The “O” Family holds some of my favorite people. Our friendship grew really strong over our 5 years that we lived in Reno and our families are bonded for life. We have been together through pregnancy’s, babies, homeschooling, packing and moving, fieldtrips, vacations, and holiday meals. We shared many meals and Sunday nights hanging out as families. Our kids adore each other and we have adopted them as cousins and Aunt and Uncle. I am so thankful for them and how they have supported us through this transition year of moving into a new community. We are 3 1/2 hours away from them but we try and make the distance seem much less through skype and regular visits. The kids are always asking when they get to play with Sarah and Alivia and I often feel a need my Christy time to get me through the next couple of months. I didn’t realize how many of my thoughts I shared with Christy until she wasn’t around all the time to share them with!
I have taken their family pictures each year for the last 4 years or so and it is fun to see my own personal growth as a photographer as I look back at their sessions. I didn’t think we could top last years session but I love these pictures too! We had gone over for a visit and to let our kids play and the weekend just filled up so quickly! We decided to do a morning session right before we left town in Grandma’s backyard which is true Nevada landscape! I am really pleased with the precious pictures I was able to capture for them and I love seeing the girls personalities shine through their portraits. And, no, those eyes aren’t touched up. They are truly that vibrant!
