these five darling children are my dear friend keri’s nieces and nephews…she gave me the opportunity to photograph all of them as a gift to her sisters. it was wonderful for me to meet keri’s roots…what an amazing, loving, welcoming family. i felt like i had known them all for years and that is such a nice feeling. there was only one thing missing this morning….keri and her family, who live on the east coast. 🙁 keri, the last photo is especially for you…your daddy wanted you to see your first baby, “ralph”. 🙂 thank you all for such a fun, special photo shoot.
