I have known this family for what feels like forever now even though we only officially met last year. Craziness! Last year was the first time they ever had family photos taken…even crazier! When I first met them they were in the middle of their adoption journey and I have been so honored to watch this story unfold. Crystal has so graciously shared with us their journey online and I have sat and read their updates with tears in my eyes multiple times. The biggest was sobbing like a baby watching the video of them bringing their new son home and meeting his new brothers. Gosh! Such an amazing thing to watch!
So, when Crystal reached out about doing new family photos of their new family of 5 of course I jumped at the chance! I had been anxiously waiting to meet sweet Matthew! We met up the day after Thanksgiving, it was cold and windy, but they ROCKED it!
Matthew was first up in front of the camera and here are the first few images….seriously kid??!?? He was made for the camera!
The handsomest, and sweetest big brother ever ❤
I had to include this next one…how could i not! haha poor guy! I promise he ended up having fun!
The next images are my favorites for sure. Just ADORE this family!
Bring on the water works!
I can only imagine what life is like with 3 boys…and two 2 year olds! But these two sure make it look easy. Their love for each other shines so bright!
Mom and Dad had their wedding pictures taken on this bridge so it was only fitting that we take some here.
Chris and Crystal — THANK YOU! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such amazing people, for having the biggest hearts, and for allowing ME to capture these moments for you! It is the biggest honor! ❤
