One of the best parts of my job is spending time and capturing moments with my own family. If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, then you know how much I ADORE my nephew Ethan! He is my perpetual little model! My family & I are spending Christmas together a day early, so I get to see him in all of his Christmas glory tomorrow! He’s finally at that age where he can rip off the wrapping paper all by himself! My brother & his wife asked me to FINALLY do a family shoot with all 3 of them!! I of course was completely thrilled! Nate & Lindsey are gorgeous and we all know how I feel about Ethan! So I ventured down to their beautiful home and spent and afternoon with them in their back yard. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!

The next two posts are full of people I love. I am so excited to finally share these images with you! I’ve been waiting for a BIG moment which has finally happened…but i’m saving that till next post! ­čśë

I’d like to introduce you to the Shroyer family, Mike, Ami, J Michael, and Sadiella! Mike and I have been friends for years, literally, he was one of my camp counselors when I was a kid at Casowasco! Since then we’ve seen each others ups and downs, relocations, and families grow. I was ┬áprivileged to visit them in NC back in November of 09. I was able to allocate a whole week to Shroyer time! Sooooo fabulous! It’s always tough when I have to leave, they’re absolutely wonderful, and I’ve been tempted (more than once) to move to where they are. Not that they don’t suggest it every chance they get :mrgreen: . But, God has me here in cold and snowy NY for now. Maybe one day I’ll get to join them in the warm and sunny Carolinas!

Every time I look at these pictures I’m flooded with wonderful memories. I can’t wait until I get to visit them again! I miss them so much!
