Not gonna lie, I was a little intimidated when Lisa called and asked if I could photograph the 16 members of her family that were coming into town for a beach vacation over Memorial Day. Especially since six of them were under the age of six. I can honestly say though, it was one of the most fun and memorable family sessions I've ever shot.
I ran into Lisa when I was photographing my friend Kelly's wedding back in April and was honored when she called and asked if I could photograph her family when they came back into town. I first met Lisa at her sister, Kay's wedding - I had the pleasure of being the assistant photographer at both Kay and Lisa's weddings - and here we are five years (and five kids!) later documenting another beautiful family get together.
The Parhams are an incredible family. The parents/granparents, Becky and Mickey, are as kind and welcoming as they come. Kay, Lisa and the youngest sister Beth are all moms now, beautiful as can be with smiles that are absolutely contagious. They picked some winners in their husbands John, Brian and Joey, who are obviously great dads who enjoy and adore their families. Their brother David and his wife Andrea are absolutely adorable and seriously belong on the cover of a magazine somewhere. And the kids. Don't even get me started on the kids. Just check out the photos and you'll see what I mean. Laughter, fun and a little bit of mischief, as it should be. Thank you so much Parham Family for giving me the opportunity to once again photograph your beautiful family!
