If you followed my blog back in summer 2010, you may recognize this lovely couple:

It's Kenan + Nick! : ) Such an adorable pair. When Kenan contacted me about doing some photographs of her family, I was so happy! I love photographing families throughout the years, because it gives me the chance to keep in touch and witness everyone's growth. Speaking of growth, Kenan now has a booming, FABULOUS business called Pretty & Painted Pets. If you are an animal lover and want a custom portrait of your pet, I highly recommend Kenan -- her work is STUNNING!

I met up with the Crawford family at Freedom Park in Charlotte, NC last weekend and even though our session got cut short by the rain (silly, unpredictable weather!), I still think we got some great shots that this family can treasure forever. And the umbrellas actually added a fun element to the shoot! Please meet Ryan, Kathryn, Nick, Kenan, Joe, Diane and Graham. : )

Awwww, sibling love.
