merry christmas from peru #2

If you’ve been a long time follower, then you may remember last year around this time when I posted about my 2 day trip to Peru and then the result of the photos on the Christmas card here. Well, I had the ginormous honor of going back to Peru this past October to photograph the Barriger Family in Peru again for their 2011 Christmas card that they send out to 4000+ people and churches across the world. I can’t say this enough: SUCH.AN.HONOR. This family is AMAZING. Truly, such good people with beautiful hearts. I wish everyone had the opportunity to meet them or know them. They are so inspiring, kind, generous and all around wonderful. You know that animated movie THE INCREDIBLES?? This is the real life version of that family. Truly. I am so so grateful God brought them into my life, they have changed it more than they realize.

Dear INCREDIBLES – You are my heroes, my family and my friends. I love you SO much and I can’t wait to see you again. MUAH.

So the next set of photos were completely unplanned. Everyone was getting ready to start shooting in front of the water and all of the sudden a huge wave came to the shore and well… you’ll see what happened as I just kept snapping haha.

Hilarious no? They ended up using all 5 of those photos on the back of their Christmas card. SO FUNNY.
