It has been a while since we saw the Katzenmeier family. 5 years actually. Ryan photographed their wedding in 2011 and we have been waiting to see them again ever since. Now they have a beautiful little girl. She happened to turn 4 the day we did their family shoot too. She was all excited and happy from her birthday party. She has the sweetest little smile. I love how this family is together. They are calm and relaxed and yet totally playful. You have to admit it melts your heart a little the way that Matt is a big brother. He just loves his little sister to death. He is willing to snuggle and tickle and she just wants to give him kisses right back.
Not only did we get the benefit and excitement of Marvin being on leave from being stationed abroad but his family flew in for the occasion as well. All the cousins get along so well. You can see it when they laugh together. Overall it was a fun family outing. I was glad I got to be a part of it!
