"I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich."

As I walked into the back patio of Nancy and Fred Kinsie's gorgeous home, I was greeted by a table full of family and an offering for some cake and a drink.  I accepted the cake, but regretfully turned down the drink...after all I was working. The family had gathered to celebrate father's day and 2 family birthdays.  The mood was all about fun, I felt right at home.  In runs shy, sweet little G, who hid her face in dad's chest and whispered in his ear.  G is the same age as my Maria and just as shy.  When the opportunity came up, I asked her if she wanted to take some special pictures all by herself.  I was hoping to bring her out of her shell, quietly - just the 2 of us.  Mom and dad were only a few feet away, but it made all the difference.  We discussed Dora and the new Disney movie Tangled - and I managed to snap a few adorable shots of her.

The last few shots of the evening were of Nancy and Fred.  I asked them about their family - they all seemed so close.  They responded " we don't know how we did it".  Darn...I was looking for some answers.  How do you keep a family so close all these years later?  I suppose it has something to do with dinners on the back patio and creating a mood of love, energy and fun.  It was a pleasure to photograph this wonderful family.
