Celebrating A Legacy
This past weekend I had the pleasure of traveling to New Hampshire to visit with dear friends, Dave & Anna, who were ending their month long vacation in the States. Living aborad means that they have little opportunity to see their family and friends who live in the States, so when they have the chance to make it happen, it's a big deal. To make it even more interesting, Anna is one of 9 siblings with 26 immediate family members. Getting everyone together in the same state at the same time? A VERY BIG DEAL.
I was honored to be asked to photograph this amazing family and celebrate the legacy that Anna's parents have created together. It can be easy to overlook the impact just one couple can have in the world, but not with this family. Anna's parents started with just two and have multiplied to 26. Their roots have crossed cultures, barriers and challenges. Their love has multipied in the most beautiful of ways.
Bev & Auke are one of the sweet couples who are a part of this family's legacy. Newly engaged, (Auke is from the Netherlands and was visiting during this epic family portrait get together!) we snuck them away for a mini engagement session. Nothing says New Hampshire more than some beautiful golden light dappled through the forest trees. Oh, you know I was in photographer heaven!! And c'mon, how adorable are these two?!
Thank you to this amazing family for inviting us in and allowing us to be witness to this incredible legacy. Here's to you!!
