Well, it's official...I have found my new favorite holiday. A holiday spent with family, friends, great weather, mountains of food, football, fireplaces, 4-wheelers, endless desserts, acres of land to roam around, and amazing drinks to top it all off!

I'd like to call it, The Krauss Friendsgiving Extravaganza! 

This past Friday, I had the great pleasure of taking part of The Krauss's Family Friendsgiving event at their beautiful home in Powhatan, Virginia! This was a day full of endless laughs with the best company and the food was truly the icing on the cake! I've known Kelli and Johnny for over seven years now and we recently met up again in Charlottesville while they were on an anniversary trip! After sharing some beers and catching up on how the years between us have been, Kelli told me that they were planning on having this event the day after Thanksgiving. I offered to come down and take some portraits of them while everyone was together for the holidays, and Kelli and Johnny said YES

Truthfully, I felt like I was the lucky one to witness all of the love that was being poured out from everyone that day. All of the families were so welcoming and so incredibly generous, and you could tell how much they all truly cared for one another. Talk about something to be thankful for.

THANK YOU Krauss Family for letting me take part on this special day for you all!

I can't begin to explain the love I have for all of you!
