a walk in the woods || portraits

These people are my sister, brother-in-law and simply adorable nieces. They came up to visit a while ago, and we happened to take a walk in the woods, where I happened to take about 200 pictures of them. Hannah and David have been married for 4 years, and have 2 adorable little girls--Anayah {age 3) and Sydney {she'll be 1 in a week.}. These 4 are some of my favorite people in the whole world. David is 6'4"--a foot taller than Hannah--and could definitely pass as a basket-ball star. In fact he is a fabulous skier, could-be pro surfer, amazing musician and over all a great guy. Hannah is very petite, extremely profound and wise, funny {you don't even want to know how many times we've laughed for an hour straight--about nothing}, and absolutely g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s. I love these folks to pieces, and love how these pictures portray their little family and love for each other. :)

Enjoy! xx
