My sister Becky, her husband Mike, and three kids Hayden, Ephraim and Sydney came into Santa Barbara recently to visit Mike’s family. She’s a Westmont College alum and he grew up here, they met in Santa Barbara and now live in Palm Springs (where her and I grew up).
Anyway, she wanted an updated family portrait to have for Christmas, so we decided to do them sooner rather than later (it’s never too early to take family Christmas portraits!) We went to Chase Palm Park, grabbed a shot of the whole family for her to use for her Christmas cards and then we let the kids play while I took candid pictures. As you can see, Sydney sort of stole the show.
They are all so adorable… our visits are too few and far between but it’s always nice when I get to see them. Check out their slideshow for more images.
