The Scriven Family {Monroe Everett Photographer}

Not only are these guys one good looking family, but they also happen to be my family! I just love them to pieces. We decided to update their family photos during our family vacation to Sunriver Resort in Oregon a few weeks ago. And, I am so excited to post these photos since a lot has changed since our last session together.

Lisa wanted to update their family photos since it’s been a few years and also, to document all that they have to be thankful for!

On May 4, 2015, Lisa got a devastating phone call from Pete’s boss that he had a terrible fall off a building while he was at work. That day all of their lives changed. Thankfully, Pete was alive and not paralyzed…but the road to recovery has been a long and hard one. To see more about that journey, check out this video here.

Pete has one of the most inspirational attitudes of anyone I’ve met. And I am so happy to have been able witness  the strength of he and Lisa’s love for one another first hand. This journey, which could have very easily torn some couples apart, has only made their marriage that much stronger.

They rely on love and laughter and family to get them through the tough times. When you get together with these guys, you can’t help but smile. My nieces and nephew constantly crack me up and their photo shoot was no exception.

We lucked out with some delicious golden light and I had so much fun shooting at this absolutely breathtaking location. I wish is was closer for me to use more often! 😉

Thank you guys so much for putting up with my crazy photographer requests and sharing in a night of laughs as we chased the golden light behind the mountains! I love each and every one of you and I am so lucky I married into such a great family!



And, of course, we had to include some shots with Ashley’s bestie, Emma (an honorary 4th child to Pete and Lisa)! She came along for the vacation. And the photos speak for themselves that these two gals don’t have any shortage of laughter in their friendship!
