after a LONG drive yesterday, i'm back in indiana! i had the pleasure of celebrating Christ's birth with 18 of my family members. this was the first time we'd all celebrated Christmas together - ever! my family drove down to south carolina and stayed at my aunt's, along with my grandparents, and my uncle's family who flew in from Guam. it was a full house, but also full of love.
the day after Christmas we all trekked to Bald Rock Mountain and a triple waterfall. i was eager to use my new lens santa so graciously brought me the previous day, and my sisters are always willing to be models. here are a few shots of my beautiful sisters and the gorgeous view.
the briney family is one of my favorites to photograph. i've known mom, danielle, since we were in elementary school and attended church together. she and her husband, kyle, have a precious 7-month-old daughter, khloe. i've photographed khloe since birth, and was so excited to capture her first christmas. she has BEAUTIFUL blue eyes and the sweetest personality!
merry christmas briney family :]
