I took the Negri's family photos about 2 years ago when I lived in Boise; so, it was awesome that I got to catch up with them again in Yakima. I actually know Lillie, the daughter in law, from being a state officer in a club with her in high school called FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America). It is always a fun time to reunite and get together again.
We went to the Arboretum that is in Yakima and even though it was freezing out, it was still marvelous. I love the variety that park has to offer with all the little nooks. There are gazebos, rose gardens, a zen garden, lots of little ponds, you could never get bored there.
The best part of this shoot was the babies. Lillie just had Deeken, a week prior to our shoot, he was so tiny! Her other little boy was also adorable and very photogenic.
