We met the lovely Dirven family at our very first Vintage Valentine event in 2010. We have seen them every year since–lucky us! We feel especially fortunate to get to photograph them, as they travel from over 2 1/2 hours away to come here! I always know that they will show up with great wardrobe, as mom likes to show their style and personalities off in the portraits. We actually made these portraits at the end of last summer (yep, we’re that behind on blogging!!) on a beautiful August day. Hard to believe in just a few short months they’ll be back for their next family portrait! It’s been such a treat getting to watch these kiddos grow and change, but one thing has stayed the same–their sweet relationship with each other.
