These lovely people are my friends and neighbours, for over 15 years now!! I've taken their family portraits several times over the years and it's always amazing to see how much the kids have grown and changed. I'm pretty sure their son Josiah has grown 3 feet since I've last seen him!! :) Documenting your changing family is one reason why a yearly family portrait is such an important tradition.
I LOVE the co-ordinating pop of red in their clothing. It gives their portraits a Christmas feel, which is perfect because they wanted a portrait for their Christmas cards to send to family that live far away.
Do you get a yearly family portrait taken? If not, make it a tradition for your family. You will never regret it!
