TOPIC: Extended Family Sessions.
Christmas in June | Southaven Family Photography
I say this truthfully: without my mom’s best friend Cindy, I don’t know what we would have done over the last three years. She has stayed with my mom in the hospital, cooked us meals, prayed with us, wrapped our Christmas presents, and about a million billion other things that make her one of the best-hearted people in the world. Knowing how generous she is, I wasn’t at all surprised to hear her plans when her daughter Sarah and her family came home for a weeklong visit from their missions work in Egypt. Cindy made every day special: one day, they celebrated Christmas, another was Halloween, another was a “birthday” party, and so on, every day of the week.
I arrived to take a few photos of the whole assembled group on “Christmas.” Everyone changed out of their Yule attire and posed for a few photos on a windy June afternoon. Cindy really wanted to pile everyone in the pickup truck, and I have to say that’s one of my favorite shots. It’s such a happy Mississippi moment.
We only regret that it was too soon for Amanda and Timothy’s new little boy Miles to make an appearance, as he didn’t arrive until a few months later. But his newborn pictures are coming up soon, so he gets his due!
