. I was thrilled when Amy and Ricardo asked me to photograph their family portraits this year. I've known then since high school but we hadn't seen each other since I shot their wedding a couple of years ago (here). Even though we never hang out and mostly keep touch through Facebook, I still consider them great friends. When I do see them, it feels like I'm with family. Their kids are the sweetest and so well-mannered-- it's really impressive. There's just SO much love in this family and I think were were able to translate that in these photos we shot up in the mountains a a few weeks ago.
