We first met Jen and Ray at their friends wedding back in 2009, shortly there after, they asked if we photographed family portraits…and the rest is history! We have been photographing their beautiful children every year since. It really has been so fun to see them grow a little taller each year and to watch their personalities really come to life!
The first two years it was just Jen, Ray and their children and then slowly the extended families have also come along. It’s so great to see sisters, in-laws, cousins and grandparents all come together to capture a moment in time. You just never know what the next day will bring and having some precious family photos to remember our loved ones is so very important. We can’t thank the Santos Family enough for letting us preserve those memories for them!
We thought it would be fun to go down memory lane a bit and post a photo from the previous three years to see where it all started and how they have grown!
The first year we went to an apple orchard…lots of fun! (2009)
The second year, we did a session in the summer at the beach! (2010)
Last year we got to meet the extended family! (2011)
And then this year we had to find a back up location real quick as it was predicted to rain and with even more family members coming this year we couldn’t reschedule. We got real lucky and were given the opportunity to use a friends barn and we think this back up plan ended up a perfect location! This year, it seems like the kids have really changed and are getting so grown up!
The next few photos were taken with all the grandparents!
The little guy is the their new cousin!
I don’t think they ever take a bad family photo!!
While the kids continue to grow and change, I don’t think Jen and Ray have changed one bit!
Thank you, Jen and Ray and all your extended family for once again allowing us to document this time in your lives! We look forward to next year!!
