the Visger family (and then some!)

My roommate, Rachel was so excited to have her family all together for Christmas time, since normally they are spread around the world! Her older brother, Ben and his wife live in California with their two kids and one of her other brothers, Nate lives in Japan... so it was a treat when they were going to both going to join the family in Michigan for Christmas! Of course, I was thrilled when they asked me to shoot some family portraits of them while they were all together! Rachel's parents have worked hard to update the house over the past year or two, so it was fun to take the pictures in the newly redone house! Here are a few from the shoot...

Nick is good friends with Rachel's oldest brother, Ben. Nick and his wife stopped by with their little one as we were finishing up the session, so we took the chance to grab a few family photos of them as well!

Merry Christmas!

"While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger because there was no room for them in the inn" - luke 2:6-7

May you feel love and joy this Christmas season that comes from spending time with family, giving gifts to one another and reflecting on the true meaning of why we celebrate this holiday!

This past Saturday, I took some headshots of my nephew, Matthew. You may remember when I took some of his twin sister, Kayla a few months ago. Well, as a result of those pictures, my little niece was signed to a modeling agency and her brother wanted to do it, too! So of course, I was willing to take a few of my other little model! Here are a few highlights - as you can see from his smiles we had a fun time with these! :)
