Annual Keep Family Photos

Every year the Keep family has a portrait session. This year I was honored to be able to take their portraits for the second time.

When Sunny and I talked about the photo shoot we talked about how to have everyone look great without matching too much, or looking like a disconnected group. Pleasing everyone when you have a family of seven is a tough task, but the outfits she selected are perfect! The clothes are both relaxed and fashionable.

Initially we picked a spot near the Keep home for their photo shoot, but had to reschedule. When we talked again to pick a spot the idea to capture the images near their Colorado River home came to life. This picturesque desert spot is nestled between the river and the open desert for a earthy, vibrant setting. This location is just perfect for this family.

Kasey, the youngest son, was independent and amiable. We had the most fun with his individual portraits. He was eager to try anything!

Despite being the youngest boy, Kasey was still a protective older brother.

Lanie, the older daughter is a true beauty. There is something about the combination of her brunette hair and bright blue eyes that captivates me. She’s the true all-American girl.

Jake and Riley are the perfect older brothers. Both protective of the younger siblings, as well as outgoing and amiable, they lead this active bunch and make fun where ever they go. While we were out shooting these two chatted and heckled one another - as brother do.

Shawn and Sunny have a classic boy-meets-girl love story. You would never guess these two have been married for nearly eighteen years!
