I really don’t know how it is that I am so beyond blessed to be able to photograph such amazing people. It’s hard for me to find the words for this family other than to say, I just absolutely love them like my own family. Maybe that’s because I grew up with this family… I consider the adults in this family an extension of my own siblings. We went to school together, played in the neighborhood, went on vacations and had countless dinners together. So, it is with great honor that I accepted their request for a photo shoot to capture some of their greatest memories. Every moment of this shoot was fun… I’ve never seen such a large family have so much fun together. You can tell that they really do appreciate not only each other, but the time that they spend together. With all the craziness in the world today, I love that there are still families like this that value and appreciate what it really means to be a family. I also loved seeing the love everyone has for all of these beautiful children! It’s everything that a family should be. Capturing this families memories is the least I can do for a family who’s always loved me, accepted me and treated me like one of their own. So here are just a few of my favs!! I am forever grateful for this experience!
To the Chiarito Family- Thank you again for the honor of capturing such fun and special moments! Thank you for always being there for me and my family, and for always treating us like your own. I love that you are not just our neighbors, but our very dear friends. I can’t imagine growing up without you all. I love you guys so much and look forward to capturing many more years of the love, fun and happiness that your family embodies. xoxo
