The amazingly awesome H Family {auburn, ca family photographer}

Okay, so I may be a bit biased because this is MY family!!  While we were out visiting in California last month we decided to do a photo shoot.  We are only all together 2 times a year now that the majority of us seven kids are out of the house (weird!!) - so whenever it happens, it's our only shot (no pun intended) for a group family picture for Christmas cards etc.  So we went and had a crazy, extremely hot and tiring photo session.  And I am happy to announce that we all made it through alive!!  The two boys (ah hem... one of them my son) were NOT having it that day.  I think I'll go ahead and start off with my favorite picture: the grandkids.  This picture is actually 2 different pictures put into one ha!!  

The boys both took their turns crying and running away while sweet Miss Mariah held the twins and smiled away (thank you Riah!).  I still can't believe we even got something this good - even though the boys aren't smiling, they're not screaming and they're looking in the overall direction of the camera!! I just had to get a picture of what was going on behind me while I was taking their pics (see below).  No wonder they were crying!!!! hahahaaa (this is obvious this is a JOKE right?) I just couldn't resist...

Okay, on a more serious note - here are the rest of my favorites.  I am so grateful for my family and feel lucky to be a part of it.  It's been hard living so far away the past year (can't believe it's already been a year!) but when we get together, it's like we've never been gone.  I love you guys!!!
