hello Oklahoma!

Utah doesn’t corner the market on gorgeous families. Marisa and Antonio drove(yes, IN THE CAR for 1,880 miles!) their little crew from Oklahoma to Salt Lake for Thanksgiving.

In case you don’t connect the resemblance– Marisa is sister to our lovely Claudia.

first– Isabella, age 7, just as lovely as her name

Nico, age 5, his dad likes his hair like this

but his mom prefers this. Adorable either way. Doesn’t he look like an Antonio? It was really embarrassing when I repeatedly said, “Hey Antonio. Hey cutie. Smile at me sweetie.”

Yea, ’cause that’s his dad’s name.

And then Sophia, age 4, so beautiful and giving me serious hair envy.

Antonio is Columbian and doesn’t like the grinning look in photos.
but he can’t help smiling around his lovely wife.
He unabashedly adores Marisa– it’s a pleasure to witness.

love this.

no photoshoot would be complete without pulling out one of Mary’s dresses–
it makes me feel better about my addiction.
