From 2 to 19!! Montgomery, Alabama Family Photographer {Orange Beach, Alabama}

It all started with these two lovebirds who met at Lipscomb in Nashville.    The beautiful lady on the left is my Aunt.  My mom’s sister, to be exact.  The hunky man on the right is my hilarious preacher man Uncle.   Are they not ADORABLE!!!!  I was soooo excited when I got a text from my cousin Amy asking if I could possibly meet up with them to shoot the whole FAMJAM!  Uh, YEAH!  Luckily, we were in Orange Beach that week.  We met half way in P’cola.

Uncle S and Aunt J have 4 kids.  They are all wonderful folks and they live too far away from me.  The youngest hottie is still unattached. (I’ll give you his digits if you beg me. ) The other three have lovely families, wouldn’t you agree?!!  One of the families just adopted a baby from the Marshall Islands and everyone is in LUV with her!!

Literally, I got choked up editing these pictures.  It just seems like yesterday we were all at my Nene and Papa Jack’s house kicking each other in the knees and getting our mouths washed out with soap for saying “fart.”   Whoops, did I just type that?    I miss them all so much.  🙁

I sent Amy a few wardrobe choices and they totally ROCKED it!  I love that color pop!  Let’s do it again next year, K?!!!!
