When Derek asked me if I would take family portraits as a christmas gift for his mother, I jumped at the chance! I've known the Swink family since I was young kid, where we would roam the neighborhood on our bikes and camp out on our little jon boats in the middle of our community lake, with that I know first hand how special this family really is. This Christmas was the first time in a year that the whole family was able to get together, since the youngest, Kyle, is in the Air Force and currently stationed in Texas. It was gorgeous day for this session as we strolled through Historic Downtown Sanford and walked along Lake Monroe. I'm very happy with how these photos turned out and that I get to capture special memories with amazing people.
I hope everyone had a happy holiday and a great start to the new year!
