Coming from such a large clan, family traditions are pretty important to us. We love getting together for brunch on Sundays, grilling out by the pool together (thanks Aaron and Stephanie!), and we all talk on the phone fairly regularly. All that aside, we also make time for traditions like our annualfamily beach vacation. So when Cristina called and we started chatting about her family coming down for their family beach vacation, I was super excited when she and her hubby decided to have me come out and photograph while they were visiting in June!
Crystina said that she and her family have a timeshare here in Virginia Beach, so they come down to do their family beach vacation every year and decided that this year was the perfect time to get some updated family photos done!
I think that we picked one of the hottest days of the year to do pictures (seriously, temperatures were close to 100 degrees that day!), but you would never know how hot and sticky things were from all the smiles that we shared that evening.
It was lovely getting to hang out with these awesome people and their kiddos, especially since the kids had such big personalities! I hope that every time Cristina and her husband look at the canvas pictures of their family beach vacation hanging on their wall that they remember what an amazing time they have here in Virginia Beach and the love they have for each other.
