The Peek Family

A few weeks ago I spent the afternoon with the Peek family.

I had so much fun getting to know them and capturing the dynamics of their family.

There is clearly SO much love in this family for one another.  But, at the same time, there is that sibling love/hate relationship.  It’s so interesting to see how 4 kids in the same family can be so similar and so different at the same time.

Ivy is the oldest.  She is 13 and loves My Chemical Romance.  She is tall and beautiful.  Both inside and out.

Wyatt is 8.  He has amazing hair.  He’s a sweet boy, but don’t ever call him Wayde.  He does not like to be called Wayde ;)

Casen is the baby.  He likes attention :)   He worships the ground his older sister walks on and the feeling isn’t always mutual.

Zaine is 11.  He loves video games and is a picky eater.  He is a rule follower.  Just like me.  I always follow all the rules.  Except when possibly trespassing to get the perfect shot ;)   Note to self:  Don’t tell Zaine if we are possibly trespassing on our next shoot! Tiffany and Dave are so much fun.  They’ve been together since Tiffany was a senior in high school.  Their love for one another and their family is so evident!

Thanks Peek family!  I had a great time getting to know you!  Here’s your slideshow!

The Abraham Family

It’s amazing how you can go 13 years without seeing someone and it’s like a second hasn’t passed. Jiji and I went from elementary school to high school together. She was always that super sweet, really smart girl that everyone liked. Now she has her own little girl that looks just like her and is just as sweet. Kayla turned 1 today! She is very independent, loves to dance, and makes funny faces. My favorite is the “Home Alone” face! She had us laughing the entire time. Especially when she went to town on her cake! The girl ate half of it! She has a sweet tooth just like me!

This was the first time I had met Jiji’s husband, Ash, and they are just meant for each other. He’s such a fun dad and loves his girls. Ash swears that he will be Kayla’s date to the prom in about 15 years so he loves to practice slow dancing with her. They also love reading ESPN together too :) Love it!

Thank you Jiji and Ash for allowing me to document this time in your lives. Your family is beautiful and let’s not go another 13 years without seeing each other! Here’s your slideshow and happy 1st birthday to Kayla!

Here’s the Home Alone face :)
