the z family. {we love them}

Chad, Konul, Leyla, and Zazi….some of our most favorite people in the world.   Chad is Brett’s brother.  Konul is our beautiful sister-in-law.  They have two of the most beautiful children in the universe (yes, I took it there).  For his wife Konul’s birthday, we went out and did a “mini-shoot” of them.  Although they would say they are more “city” urban type people, they went along with my idea of doing this sunflower field I had my eye on by their house.  We worked quickly, and within a 12 ft. radius but, we got the job done.  I ended up with so many photos, I couldn’t decide which ones to post!

This session was kind of a big deal for Chad, because he hates having his picture taken and he is known for not smiling in them.  So thanks for going along with it Chad.

Priya was doing some crazy dance behind me to get this shot. :)


I love how they are each talking to the kids.


Chad and my handsome nephew Zazi.


Leyla kissing her Mama. :)



LOVE this!!


LOVE this too!!!


Leyla went walking in the sunflowers…she was so cute.


Of course Zazi had to follow, and he tried to smell the sunflowers. :)


They are rarely together for more that .0002 seconds…so I snagged this quickly before Zazi shoved her off.





Precious Zazi.  I love this photo…


I had to blow it up a bit so you could see closer.


Cutie pie.


Hugging on Mama.


This child melts my heart.


One of my favorites.



Konul, you are such a beautiful Mama.


Chad, you will never change.

(he’s famous for telling secrets.)



I love this photo.  Such a sweet little intimate moment.


love this one too. :)


Happy birthday again Konul!  I’m glad we could get these for you.  Next up, we’ll do the city shots. :)

Love you guys!!
