How lucky was I to be able to travel to Naples, Florida for the Christmas holiday! Not only was I able to photograph this wonderful family, but I was also very happy to be a part of their family for 10 days. It was the first time the four of them had all been together in quite a while, so what better time to take a family portrait? (of course I had the plan in my head and they were NOT going to get out of it!
I couldn’t ask for better smiles…
This beautiful couple will be married for 50 years this coming February! Can you believe? I would say they don’t even look 50!
Can you tell which sibling is the clown? (hint….the one sitting down!)
There is nothing as sweet as a mom with her two baby boys…..did I say baby? Well, there is lots of love here….eek!…… The setting was on the Lake right behind their property. We were lucky to catch the last of the sunset. It was a tough time rearranging a day when everyone was around during the daylight hours!
How about the handsome men of the family……I must say, I got to hang out with two of them at the beach and pool! Sorry ladies, part of the perks!
This one brought tears to my eyes! Mom was overly joyed to have me “force” them into a family photo shoot, as her Christmas gift! It was worth lugging an extra 50lbs of equipment on the plane! (luckily I had help in the lugging department!)
…..and more…..(I think they were trying to be Crockett and Tubbs, however I think it was more like Abbott and Costello…or Felix and Oscar………….maybe Bert and Ernie!)
We couldn’t leave without a visit from the momma duck and her babies!
