I couldn't have been more excited to photograph the Coil family when they were together for their Christmas gathering! It's always a special time when you fill your house up with those you love the most in the world, and even better for me when I get to catch up with some Fairfield friends I hadn't seen in %&^ years! Don't worry Ton, I won't tell! The first wonderful thing I noticed was how the din of 17 people-laughing, talking, teasing, filled every corner. Cousins catching up, siblings chatting and everyone enjoying themselves. One of my favorite photos was grandma and grandpa with their grandchildren.
The whole family was a bit of a challenge, as so many people take up a WHOLE LOT of space! We could count on Uncle Steve to keep the mood light, thank goodness! They were packed in there like SARDINES and were laughing the WHOLE time. Straighten up you cards, I need a good one or your mama is going to whoop me! Goofballs. Notice Steve is one of the few NOT acting up here.
Marge and Dick opted to stay indoors, but I drug all the families outside for their mini session. It was 39 degrees that day and you would have thought we were all going to freeze to death. This week, 39 would be balmy! Now, we're on to the family photos....
Thank you Coil Family for sharing so much holiday spirit with me! It was fantastic to see you all again and lets not wait $(%&@ years to do it again!!!!
