Backlit at its finest ~ The Mitchell Family ~ Hickory, North Carolina Family Photographer

Robin said “I feel like I already know you” as we approached each other

I know the feeling

We follow each other on FB for quite some time and lives got busy

I’m so glad I finally got to meet her and her crew

I knew I would already love them

What I didn’t know is how funny they would be

These kids….

They were “yes mam” “no mam” to my every question

That kind of respect is missing from kids now

It really is

Made me smile

“Bienvenue” ~ Welcome ~ A Thanksgiving Celebration ~ Hickory, North Carolina Family Photographer

“Bienvenue” is a French word meaning “welcome”

I felt just that

The door greeted me with the smells of homemade lasagna, crafts were being played at the table, and wine was being poured.

Doesn’t get much better than that.

Grandma told me that all her children hadn’t been in the same household for Thanksgiving for 4 years…

A celebration indeed.

Here is a small portion of that evening…
