I first met this family through NWA Motherlode when this sweet little girl below was born. Then last year I had the opportunity to photograph the entire family, and now again this fall. This year mom wanted to have our session on some of their family land. This land has been in her family for a VERY long time. I can't remember how many years exactly, but a long time. :) The house still stands, but was built back when there was no running water or electricity. I got to walk down past the old smokehouse and see where a waterhole was built to collect water and often do laundry. Out at the back of the land was a body of water where they often get together nowadays and have campfires and sometimes spend the night. I hope these precious baby's know how blessed they are to grow up around so much family. And a place where they now get to make some memories of their own.
