I didn’t realize that it had been over a month since I last blogged on here! With a week of family vacation, a week of church camp plus the start of the HOT season here in Houston (a.k.a the season when no one wants to be outside taking family photos because of the sweat and mosquito factor), I ended up taking a much needed break from photo shoots. This means that I was more than ready for last night’s session! This family contacted me to take some photos of them while they are on vacation in Galveston. When I found out that this big family beach vacation was a bit of a family tradition for them, I had two thoughts. First of all, how fun is that?! And second of all, was Galveston going to be everything they had hoped for? They have vacationed in much…shall I say…prettier locations. I’ve got love in my heart for Galveston beach, it’s true. But when it comes to beauty, Galveston doesn’t hold a candle to the beaches of Florida!
But not matter how plain Galveston beach may seem, when you’ve got a fun family that loves each other, loves to laugh, loves the beach, and loves to vacation together, it really doesn’t matter.
When I knocked on the door of their beach house, I could already hear the kids laughing inside and having a great time. The little boys (ages 6-9) immediately started showing me some of their dance moves, which I must say were pretty awesome. I just loved the personalities of all the kids, and how the adults were in full vacation/relax mode. I truly love my Galveston sessions!
And one last one to share. The glue of this sweet family, going on 45 years of marriage. I love seeing firsthand what love can do in a family. From these two, to a family of 5, to a family of 13. Love it.
Thank you so much for letting me spend the evening with y’all. I hope y’all enjoy the rest of your vacation!
