For this year’s pictures we decided to drive out to the Santa Monica Pier. My brother Chad, his beautiful wife Emily of Juxtapose Media, and their two kiddos met us there! It’s always so much fun having so many photographers in the family, because we can take awesome pictures for each other!! It was a gorgeous but CHILLY day! The first goal was to get all 4 cousins in a picture together. This is always a hilarious, stressful, chaotic moment that never really happens! What we did capture was each of their personalities, though, and that’s what matters! By the time we all finished we were FREEZING, so we ended the day at Bubba Gump’s for dinner. Here are a few of the shots that I took, and I’ll share more of the ones that Emily took later.
