Family Story: Whitehouse/Suggs/Hollings Family

Where to start with this post?!  I have know various members of this family from different parts of my life- I even knew one member of this family before they were actually a part of the family!  The whole gang invited me down to invade their family vacation at Cherry Grove, SC to grab some shots on the beach...

So this was the whole crowd on vacation...

The connection between all these beautiful people start here- the Whitehouse Family.  I met Christina first when she and her husband started helping with the youth group I was a part of at church.  I fell in love with her immediately, seeing how we had so many things in common.

This is a much more accurate depiction of the family dynamics :)

Christina married Matt and they had precious Kara.

Occasionally I will tell kids to look into my lens and see if they can see the shutter open and close in order to get them to look at the camera.  
Occasionally this suggestion creates adorable pictures like this.

Al married Mary and they adopted Ryan.
Ryan does not like it when they kiss :) it's gross already!

Mary's Dad was brave enough to join the gang on this beach excursion.

While Al was goofy for most of the shoot, 
I was SO thrilled to catch this moment between him and Ryan.

I'll take the lot of them!!!! Ashley, I'm going to make it a mission of mine to be a constant source of advertisement. THIS WOMAN DOESN'T TAKE PICTURES SHE CREATES MEMORIES. Cheesy yes...accurate but cheesy. Thanks again Ashley!
