I love getting to photograph families like this and this was truly a special occasion. Kathy contacted me looking for a photographer in the Peoria area over Thanksgiving weekend. You see, it was going to be a pretty special gathering for the entire family. Kathy’s oldest lives in New York and hasn't been home for a couple years, and her daughter and son-in-law and grandsons (Ryan, Sarah, Jonah, and Solomon) are moving to Papua New Guinea in March to work with Pioneer Bible Translators. It was time for a special family photo and Kathy was able to not only get her immediate family together, but also her extend family together.
