Smith Extended Family Portraits

I have known the Meinika/Trier Family for about 10 years.  Before all of us had kiddos of our own we would go on huge family vacations with The Meinika Family.  They are blessed to have a very talented photographer of their own among the family; that is why it was even more of an honor […]

Large Family Portraits

Each year my in laws have a reunion, The Marrs Family Reunion.  Every reunion there are old photos displayed and new photos taken.  The photos taken are always quick snap shots of multiple different groups.  We have never really organized a nice large family portrait.  It’s silly really…the hardest part is coordinating a date and […]

Sue’s Family Portraits
