Cousins

IMG_2561This past Sunday my cousin Carole came to visit w/ her husband Micah.

Our family has kind of an off history… and I could spill on here for hours how it has really torn our family apart… but rather than do that – I am going to post how happy I am that we as adults are now able to stay in touch and reunite.

My 3 cousins (from my dads twin brother) – all live within a few hours of one another.

Caroles brothers are both married now as well – and their wives expecting their 1st babies!

Its exciting and I am grateful to now be some what involved in their lives.

I actually get to photograph my youngest cousin Kelly’s wife Kristy’s maternity portraits this month as well.

Family is so important – and I think it breaks the Lords heart to see Satan rip families apart due to the past – and unforgiveness.

I hope through our families we can bring this family back together – so our children will one day know their cousins – and break the cycle that has happened up until now.

I am so glad I got to see Carole and Micah – I look forward to visits in the future!!

I also snagged a few portraits of them together for fun 🙂 heres a few of my favorites…

*btw butt grabs are totally ok – if you’re married 😉
Micah’s expression makes me smile – they are cute together huh!?*

    Looks like you had a great time 🙂 I don’t have any cousins my age around here that I spend time with. The ones that I would spend time with live thousands of miles away!
