The Boles family live in Texas, but like many other Texans, they love the mountains in Colorado and hired my husband and I, who are Photographers in Durango CO, to capture their family in those mountains.
This group is like the Brady Bunch (If you don’t know that show, look it up). There are 3 boys and 3 girls and they’re a blended family. They’re all silly, goofy, and so much fun. Rob is the dad, and Lisa is the mom.
I cracked up looking at the husband’s face during this group hug.
They wanted to have this family portrait taken because it was the dad’s birthday, and the two older boys (the one with the long hair, and the one with the beard), are headed off to boot camp. Yeah, he’s gonna miss that hair – haha.
Rob’s kids usually spend the summer with their mother, so this is the first time they’ve all been together in 10 yrs. I love it that they chose to have portraits taken because that’s an awesome way to remember your time together.
Lisa has two boys that live with them, although the oldest is heading off to join the navy.
The girls chose to pose this way, and I was happy to capture it because it’s fun and goofy.
All of the kids love to have fun and act silly.
This group pose isn’t silly, but I like it because it’s relaxed and they’re all happy. Nice pyramid shape!
Of course, we also had to do a pose with just Rob and Lisa, the newly married happy couple.
The whole family took a walk in the field while holding hands to show their unity as a strong family. Even though they’re not all related by blood, they love each other very much.
If you need a family portrait, a high school senior portrait, or have a wedding coming up, get in touch with me.
