we are family

so every year my sister’s family and I try to come up with some creative thing to do for their family Holiday card. and..every year it gets harder and harder to “top” the previous years. (see last years here ) ON TOP OF THAT, the kids, all 6 of them are growing and spreading out further on their own, making it harder to get them together. Some live out of state, some work, some are in college, a few still at home. This year, we had about a 1 hour time frame by the time they got home and by the time the sun set. ADD TO IT, it was freeezing cold,and it starting snowing like a blizzard!! OOOOOH what fun it is… hahaha!!

This year, we decided to go for the whole PEACE, LOVE, JOY/Happiness thing. We’ve done alot of jumping shots – at the beach – we alllways do some sort of group jump – its like tradition and we all swore we had done one for a card, but nope…so we just had to throw it into a card! (arent they amazing jumpers?? !!!)
The peace thing was inspired by some shots i had seen done with fingers, but wanted to incorporate their faces somehow, so i used a fisheye lens and they figured out how to come up with the peace symbol. and love -well, its not hard when you have that much love in your fam.

~much love to you all.
