McGuire | Yelm Family Session

Avram and I have lived all over the country during the past 10 years, but we've always dreamed about moving back home to the West Coast. We both grew up in Oregon and most of our family lives in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. You can imagine how excited we were to finally be able to move to Washington last summer! Since this was our first time living anywhere close to family since we got married, we had my parents and brother and sister over for Christmas this year (because it's my most favorite holiday EVER and I just love celebrating it!). It was such a fun weekend! We did a quick photo session in the backyard on Christmas Day to commemorate us all being together again.

And if you ever wondered how I act when I'm around my brother and sister... be sure to scroll all the way to the end of this post to see some ridiculous photos of us being totally ourselves. :)

Special thanks to my mom and Avram for a lot of these photos!


My parents: Mike & Nancy
