When Malinda contacted me to update her family pictures, she shared that they were overdue to have them updated. Malinda shared that it had been many years since they took a professional family picture together. Malinda and Brandon had a specific almond orchard they were hoping to use for the portrait session. Brandon helps his family care for the orchard, and he helped to find the prettiest row of almond blossoms for their family session. It is so meaningful when the location of your session holds a special place in your heart. You can view more family sessions here.
Our family used to see Malinda and Brandon’s family often, because their daughter used to do competitive gymnastics with our older daughter. It was a treat to be able to see their whole family again. Their children have grown so much since we saw them last. It is always fun to spend the afternoon with a family and to witness everyone’s special relationships. I always leave the session feeling like I know everyone a little bit better than I did before.
Malinda and Brandon, it was so much fun to see your whole family again. I love that the almond orchard held a special place in your hearts. That makes these pictures that much more special to you. I absolutely love the pictures we got with each child with the individual parent. I feel like these are such special pictures to be cherished forever. I’m sure their children never argue and only get along nicely, but they made their sibling picture look so sweet! I am so excited for you to see some of my many favorites from your almond blossom family session.
