The Whole Hekman Gang {Yucaipa Family Photographer}

My husband’s family recently had a weekend where everyone was together.  We had all 19 of us in the same place at the same time.  With a sibling who lives across the country and another who lives in Northern California, plus nieces who are in college and have jobs, this hasn’t happened in two years.  Of course we had to have a family picture taken, which the talented Abbey Lunt Photography did for us.  After our group pictures, I grabbed my camera and got to photograph the rest of the family.  These pictures are especially important to us because my father in law has been battling cancer this past year (Multiple Myeloma).  To have the whole family together was a blessing.


I just adore this picture of my in-laws because it is totally them… my father in law Sid cracking some joke and getting a kick out of himself and Marlene laughing at it 🙂  Such a blessing to have a picture of them like this.

The other local Hekman family 🙂  My husband’s oldest brother and their four cute kiddos.

This was my very first time getting to photograph the entire Christensen family.  Yay!

My oldest niece Emily.

My second oldest niece Amanda

My oldest nephew Ian

The youngest of the Christensen family, my niece Olivia.

My husband’s sister Annette and her husband Mark.  Love these pictures of them.

My brother in law Dan, who lives in Miami.
