Whidbey Island in the winter

Whidbey Island is beautiful even in the winter. Beautiful yes.... but not warm at all! I had the chance to spend some time with a huge family last weekend, and I was so thankful that they were all so willing to spend some time out in the cold for photos! It was a beautiful setting with an amazing old barn. We had almost twenty people, and did tons of group shots, family shots and shots of the kiddos of course! Here are some of my favorites from one of the families. I have known Jeremy and Jenny for years, and I was thrilled to get a chance to see them and meet their new little one Nate! He is adorable, and such a great sport. His sister Rylan... well you will see what a cutie she is!
Rylan is just one the cutest 3 and 1/2 year old out there. She is such a girl, I love it! We spent some time together taking photos and she would critique them and decide if they were good enough or if we needed to try it again. A future model for sure!
Nate is four months old... and he was such a trooper! This California baby did not seem fazed at all by our chilly weather. He is such an adorable baby... the only boy (so far) out of the seven cousins!
I was so grateful to be a part of this wonderful family reunion! Thanks especially to Jeremy and Jenny who invited me to share in this event. I hope to see you and your kiddos on your next trip up from California!

Thanks again, Sara!!! We just LOVE your photos and your work... you are an amazing photographer! We appreciated all your efforts with coming out to Whidbey-- it WAS freezing, but YOU were the one who had to be out in the cold for hours! Fun to see you, Zach, ad the girls too. THANK YOU!!

I like the way you had the family out of focus in the background in the first image. I always play with focus and the background when I shoot. Looked a little chilly for the shoot but the images are warm with family love!
