When these three sisters contacted me about doing a family session as a gift to their parents, I was so excited!  Not only was I lucky enough to capture this beautiful, growing family; I was able to catch up with old friends.  I have known this group since grade school, and many of the memories I have of school musicals and bus rides include the girls. .

We decided to do an extended family session at their property and I had to chuckle when I received the driving directions which read 'You'll turn down a gravel road that you think leads to no where ... just keep going, I promise we'll be out there'.  And I must admit, about a mile into the winding gravel road I thought I had taken a wrong turn.  Shortly thereafter the trees parted and I caught a glimpse of the most darling little cabin sitting at the edge of a beautiful lake complete with docks and diving board!  Yes folks, I do believe I have been introduced to a new little slice of Pacific Northwest heaven.

The conversation was wonderful, the weather was perfect, and the scenery gorgeous ... I didn't want the session to end!  I could have stayed all day, snapping away as I watched this beautiful family interact with each other.  I am so grateful for the gift of photography, and feel blessed that it allows me to connect (and reconnect) with amazing people like the Pulleys (and Stevens, Pendergrast, and Parrett families).  Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to share in the joy that is your family!

... and I was only half kidding about randomly showing up at the cabin with my family this summer, consider this your warning ;)
