– My Present to the Familia –

Every year for Christmas Eve my fathers side of the family gets together. This year I brought my camera equipment. My cousin Jessica and I are going to be working very hard on a photo album of our family history so that future generations know where they came from. Our plan is to have it finished in time for our next Christmas gathering. I spent the majority of the night  working capturing individual portraits.

We have four living generations right now, so we will spend the year gathering as many old photos and history as possible. It was a fun night full of laughter and catching up. I of course took photos of the families as well. I hope that they will all cherish our memories and these photos for the rest of their lives.

Sadly my father and his oldest sister are no longer with us. But the remaining six were in attendance. They hold so many stories and memories between them and I can’t wait to send out the questioner and uncover amazing stories and family histories!

Love your family, never take them for granted.
