The Gardners {Family}

FILED IN: Families

Hello internet! I am back from a brief hiatus. I have been so busy taking and editing photos that I have not had time to post any. That coupled with the craziness of the holiday season and needless to say I have been quite busy! Anyway, on to the post…

I have known the Gardner family for most of my life, that is why I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to take their Christmas Card photo this year! Sarah is one of my best friends and through growing up together her family has become like a second family to me. I have spent countless hours at their house, so I thought it was appropriate that we ended up there. This photo shoot was non-stop laughs. I think they are hands down one of the funnest families I know and have such a great dynamic. David and I were talking about it afterward, and how cool it was that they made each other laugh….constantly. They would tease one another, have inside family jokes and everyone thought it was hilarious. That is why they are so fun to be around. And shoot I might add! Enjoy their photos.

We started at UCI by their house where there were these really cool sculptures.

Then I had the idea to move on to this nature preserve nearby.
