Freid Family at CCV

I come from a family of four.  My family consists of my mom and dad, and my younger brother, Blake who is 26 and works at the Navy Base in Southern California as a civil engineer, and me, of course.  Holidays are quiet, tame, and incredibly laid back.  As I have grown older, I started to wonder what if we just had one more in the family?  An additional personality in the family may have been fun.  My dog unfortunately, doesn’t quite count.

So when I get to spend time with families larger than mine and see the dynamic of their interactions, I can’t help but smile at the difference.  During every shoot, I am honored to be a part of the love momentarily and observe so many wonderful differences and dynamics.  The Freid family is a beautiful, fun-loving family who loves Jesus.  The kids even know how to smile and charm the camera –  I love it.  We headed over to their home church at CCV to capture these images for their upcoming Christmas cards.

Merry Christmas Freids!
