the carlsons! {family session}

A few years ago... ok, 14 years to be exact, my husband, Jonathan was the ringbearer in his cousin Lars' wedding. Here they are:

As Jonathan and I celebrated our nuptials last November, Lars took the role of "MC" at our reception. The roles were a bit reversed (we thought Lars would be too old to be our ring bearer), but it was so cool that Jonathan was able to have Lars in his wedding just like he was in Lars' wedding 14 years ago!

This past week, we had the opportunity to spend the evening with Lars and his family. They hadn't had a family portrait done in over a year and a half (and if you know me, you know I think that is just not tolerable! :))... so it was about time! We met at Michigan State University (Jonathan's family bleeds green!) at the Horticulture & 4-H Children's Garden. It was so fun to hang out with them and get to know the four of them a little bit more. Lars is a third generation Director of Youth Haven Ranch (located in Rives Junction, MI and Tucson, AZ). If you haven't heard about what Youth Haven Ranch is all about, you should head on over to their website. They have been changing children's lives since 1968 and it's so exciting to see how God is continuing to work there!

Lars & Amy... thanks for spending the evening with us! We had a blast hanging out with your family and hope to see you again real soon! Enjoy the pictures :)

This is a REAL brothers' picture...
Still so much in love after 14 years...

Coming later this week... Bruce & Meredith's engagement session!
