This family lives close and stays close!  They have a great story in that they all immigrated from Russia many, many years ago and with little more than perseverance and a lot of hard work, this family succeeded and actually lives the American Dream.  I LOVE how much fun they were.  They truly understand that with kids and a lot of people, you just have to go with it to get the right pictures.  Kid’s pictures can be tough, but I had no problems, Family Photos can stress some big families out, but not these guys, they wanted to have fun and enjoy the great outdoors here in Southern California whilst having family pictures taken.

Family Reunion Photos

Family Reunion’s are a perfect time for photos

As families get older and people get jobs and families of their own, it is harder and harder for them to get together and when they have a member of the family that lives half way across the world, those times that they can get together are precious and often few. Such as the case with the Knappe Family. One of their son’s lives in Germany so when he came home for a visit with his mom and dad,  it was a perfect opportunity to have family photos done. So without further adieu here is a sample of their family photos!

Ok Now for the serious Family Shots!

A friend of mine from High School had a mini family reunion with her cousins!  These gals know how to have fun and what better than with your family?  So I went over to photograph this fun loving group and get to say hi to my old friend’s mom whom I hadn’t seen since graduated! It was a great time and I was glad I was able to capture this moment in time!
