I know I've talked about my friend Kathy on this blog before...she's the one who loaned me the first Twilight book....which in turn has snowballed into most of my friends and sisters reading the saga.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I had the extreme pleasure of shooting portraits for Kathy, her husband, Linc, and their two kids! Linc and Kathy are me and Nick's supper least they were until Colby curtailed a lot of our weekend social activities! Nick and I have spent many a nights with Linc and Kathy debating politics and tractor-pulling over wine and margaritas. We ALWAYS stay out way later then we originally planned, and we always have more fun than originally planned. And, in my book, that's what defines a good friendship!

So, when Kathy asked me to keep a spot open for them for a fall family portrait session I was thrilled! Because Kathy and Linc are Nick and I. It's fun getting to know new people, but it's also fun to take pictures of people you know really well! You can heckle them, tease them, and harrass them in ways you can't new acquaintances.

Here are a few of my favorites from our ornery, heckling, "Can-you-please-stand-a-little-closer-to-the-person-you-made-babies-with" session! Click here to see a few more of my favorites.

Daughter Kendyll showing some sassafrass. Although I think Linc needs a rebellious teenage daughter in his future, Kendyll is a really sweet, responsible girl!

Little brother Layne is playing it all Elvis.

They may bicker like a brother and sister, but they love each other.

I am a serious fan of all of Linc and Kathy's pictures as a couple. They are some of my all-time favorites.

Linc - acting like he was caught in the act....probably because he me. :)

Kathy is a fashionista. And, she brought her new red heels along for fun! One of those things she does that I could never pull off!

The family. I have a TON of good images of this photogenic family. Unfortunately, a lot of them have bunny ears behind someone's head....LAYNE!

A great picture of mom with the kids.

The end of the shoot.

I love these - this family looks like so much fun!! You can just tell they all get along but they also give each other a hard time any chance they get. These turned out great :)
