the andersen family

There was serious Nebraska beauty the night the Andersens hung out with me for photos on their acreage. Great people, big skies, chickens…it was heaven!

Christina and Charles are raising three lovely kids. Owen, Caitlin and Kayliana are nothing short of charming. Hands down, the best part of my job is gaining so many new friends of all ages.

On the right – meet Kayliana (being adored by her mom and big sis). There’s a constant outpouring of affection for this sweetheart from everyone in the family, and rightly so! She is so sweet and is nearly bursting with a contagious zest for life.

She was also rocking a pretty incredible front tooth gap! It’s good to be six!

Hey, Caitlin! This girl has more poise than you can imagine. She seems so much older than her years, and quietly attract others to herself with her calm nature. She belongs so perfectly in this beautiful landscape where she lives.

She’s also the family chicken whisperer. Every family has one? I think that’s how it goes.

See? Like I said, they ALL really like little sis. 😀

This is Owen! Honorary head of the family. He has a magnetic personality, much like his sister Caitlin, and is extremely good-natured. He endured my terrible knock-knock jokes and even sorta laughed, so that says more than I can about his character.

I think Owen’s greatest title is big brother. Gosh, he does justice to that title in the best way. These girls are completely smitten with him!

If family photos aren’t fun, you’re just not doing it right!

My favorite of all.

Christina and Charles – you have a good, good life. It was such an honor to witness little moments like these with your family.

Thanks so much for having me out to your retreat of a home, Andersen crew! I had so much fun with you all, and can’t wait to do it again sometime!
