The Ross Family: Portraits

What did you say, eh? Yep, you guessed it, this amazing family is from Canada and I had the distinct pleasure of traveling down to Carlsbad last weekend to photograph their entire family. I have been friends with Todd and his family for the past 9 1/2 years and I was truly excited for this opportunity. Todd and Deb have three girls, Emily, Sophie and Jamie. Then there is Todd's brother Kelly who came down from Colona, Canada with his wife Trisha and his three beautiful children Jessica, Tyler and Noah. Todd's sister Rachael and husband Nigel came all the way from England and finally, Todd's parents, Audrey and Ian came from Edmonton, Canada.  
Every two years, the entire Ross family has a vacation/family reunion and this year, they chose a resort in Carlsbad, the Grand Pacific. Not only was it a family vacation and a reunion, but the family is also celebrating the 50th wedding anniversary Audrey and Ian, aka Grammy Bear and Papa.  
*To the entire Ross family - thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to capture some new family memories. I hope you continued to have a wonderful time during your time in Carlsbad. To Kelly, thank you for the delicious Sushi dinner! Kampai!!!!

My three favorite girls: Jamie, Sophie and Emily
Don't you just want to eat her up and take her home? She is a major cutie.
This is one of my favorite pictures of Deborah and Jamie.  
*If you are wondering why Deborah has such a cool hair cut, it is because she is battling brain cancer. I am going to save the details for another post. All I ask of you who are reading my blog is to please keep she and her family in your daily prayers.

Rachael and Nigel. They are so funny and if you have ever met them in person, you know what I am talking about.
Another one of my favorites of the girls testing the water.
Congratulations Audrey and Ian on your 50 wonderful years of marriage.
This is what going on a vacation is all about!
