For the past decade or so, my family takes a group picture at Thanksgiving to send out for that year's Christmas.  In the past we basically just stand in a line.  So this year I wanted to kind of mixed up how we normally set ourselves up.  I wanted more portraits of the family and for the fams to see what I do when I'm working.  And in the back of my mind I wanted to have nicer pictures of our family.  I feel like this has been a really growing year for us, and I wanted to savor how we've banned together to support my mom and celebrated our love as a family. We didn't have much time for portraits, but I really wanted some pictures of all the grandkids with my parents.  I love this candid of my mom with my niece and nephew.  <3
