A few weeks ago, my family crammed themselves into the car and made the (painful) drive all the way through New Mexico to spend Spring Break here in Colorado. My Dad, Mom, brother, and one of my sisters still live in Tucson, so we don’t get to see them that often. Thanks goodness for Skype!

Since they were here and I have a camera, we thought it would be a good idea to update the family pictures. It all started with Brady finding the biggest stick he could handle and scaring the rest of the family.

That’s my boy!:)

Eric and Kayla. Wow, right?!?! Don’t they look stunning together?

I had a blast working with these two and I’m pretty crazy about how their pictures turned out. It was hard to miss – they’re both so photogenic. More importantly, they’re the type of people who are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside.

I’m so looking forward, and so thankful for, the opportunity to shoot their wedding this summer.
