the Connollys: a Family Session in Grapevine, Texas

Family

I was in Texas last week visiting some of my awesome family. In return for the trip of pure rest and relaxation (including a pedicure), I promised them a fun family photo session.

So Val, Pat, Heather, Andrew, and I took off to the Gaylord Texan Resort and Conference Center in Grapevine. The place was amazing. It had four and a half acres of indoor gardens and waterways.


I love this one of my aunt and uncle. It is one of my favorites of the session.


And I love these of my family.




They had a cheesy saloon setup inside the resort. Because really, what’s Texas without a saloon? I just couldn’t help myself.


The resort had some really cool backdrops. It was sort of modeled after the Riverwalk in San Antonio but with a few twists.

I love Heather’s hair flip!





We walked all around the massive gardens and I’m sure we even missed some parts. We then took some shots in the bowl-like grassy knoll that was part of the property. The light was just perfect.





My Aunt Val even turned the camera back on me with my cousins. I look positively evil but, then again, I was tickling Andrew.


It was a fantastic to see them again and I had such a good time! We had a barbecue, played charades, sat by the pool, and they even got up extra early to eat breakfast with me the morning I left. I have a great family! Stay tuned for my senior session with just Heather!

Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
