I absolutely love when a family sees the importance of getting family photos done every year. It is so special to be able to get a group portrait of the whole extended family, especially for a family like the Guthrie clan who are all spread out over the country. It is an honor for me to be their family photographer, especially because Heather is a photographer herself! Which you can probably tell by their perfectly coordinated outfits :)
Heather is a dear friend of mine, but I actually knew her mom first when she was my 6th grade social studies teacher at Hudson Middle School! Even though that was a lifetime ago, I still have a memory of a test where the multiple choice answers were A) Iraq B) Iran C) I Walked (haha!!) and the pyramid I made out of sugar cubes and painted gold. Isn't it funny the seemingly small details that remain engrained in your mind forever?!
This family had grown since the last time I photographed them with the arrival of a new sweet baby girl, and it is about to grow again later this year which I could not be more excited about! I'd say those are some blessed grandparents and parents :)
