We attended my stepson's wedding in Texas last weekend. It was a beautiful event and we had a wonderful weekend spending time with everyone. One of my favorite things about visiting Texas is having the chance to spend time with Jennifer and Steve. I was extraordinarily lucky to marry into a situation where my husband, his former spouse and her husband get along so well. They really worked together as a team to raise Chris and Amanda, and I'm extremely grateful that we are all able to spend time together when we have the chance.
Steve asked if I would take some pictures of Chris, Amanda and his three kids - Emily, Rachel and Russell - while everyone was together for the wedding. We almost ran out of time and didn't get the chance to take these, but I grabbed the five of them and shot these on the front porch of Jenn and Steve's house as the post-wedding barbecue was winding down on Sunday. It's also a great tribute to Jenn and Steve that these kids all get along so well. They truly seem to enjoy each other's company and like being together.
Jenn & Steve have a hallway gallery of black and white family photos. I did some black and white conversions of these photos too - just in case they needed them.
This is one of my favorites. I'm not sure if Amanda will love it, but I love that I captured her laugh.
I hope you like the pictures! It was great spending time with you!
