4 Generations and Too Many Laughs to Count!

By Jennifer Marlowe Marvin in family photos

One of my good friends, Lynn Williamson approached me sometime in November and asked if I could come to her house on Christmas Eve to take photos of her family when everyone was in town.   I of course agreed without a second thought or even asking how many people would be there.  It was just one of those things that I figured we would get figured out as it closer.  As it got closer and Lynn and I started discussing details I realized just how incredible photographing her family would be.  I came to realize that there would be 4 generations at their family gathering!!!  I think that's pretty incredible :)

My husband came with me as my assistant and although I love him, he looked a little helpless and actually disappeared at one point... haha. Gotta love it right?!!

The Wiliamson's welcomed us into their warm, beautifully decorated home with the most amazing aroma's coming from the Kitchen.  The kids were playing, parents talking and catching up, Grandma was hanging out with the grandkids and everyone was so excited to be around each other.  I felt so honored to be part of their special Christmas celebration. So here is a sneak peek into a wonderfully planned family christmas!  May you all have many more Christmas' together :)


Lastly, here is the quote of the day!  A  little nugget of inspiration!
