Family Photos.

My dear friend Andrea, who I only met this summer, took these beautiful photos for our family. Andrea and I met through a photography group on FB and we've been following each other's blogs and IG for a couple years now. Its so fun to actually meet someone in person after only knowing about them through social media. We have a ton in common and we've become great friends in such a short time!  She and her family have only been here for the summer and are leaving next week to go back home to Utah.  :( We will miss them!
