My mom likes to describe their home as "love chaos" because seriously it can be the craziest place for people who aren't used to it, especially when we invite 20 people to stay for the Holidays. We are a family of loud talking, story exaggerating, wine drinking and football watching dorks who like to fight and make up over board games for hours on end. Weirdly my husband fits right in for a person without Hill/Richter genetics. I jumped at the chance to make them all go out to the front yard to take a few quick shots but I have to say wrangling my own family is most similar to trying to photograph quintuplet toddlers!
When I think of home I think of my Dad's deep laugh, ample amount of wine, long overdue conversations with my Mom and Florida heat. We got to vacation with all of that last weekend in Key Largo plus my great husband who has been the perfect man to enter this family, he is crazy when they are crazy and intense and loud when they can't turn down the volume. I'm thankful for it all.
Welcomed into the world on Christmas Eve was my sweet little god daughter, Tempest! She is greyed with open arms by her mom, dad and big sister Moseley! So excited to see her grow and become the beautiful little woman she will become!
Some photos were taken there in the hospital after she came into the world and the others are in her first couple hours of coming home! All my love goes out to this little girl and her family who i love so dearly!
