Hi there! This time we are already back home with quite family nostalgia, missing vacations but happy with Juno following us around the house begging for attention. This is precisely the flip side of being away from home, she misses us so much that when we are back Juno becomes a lap cat… can’t complain about it!
During our holidays we went to Madrid for a few days, but before we share more of that time we would like to show you first some family pictures we took, when they were visiting us home, at a wetlands & ruins with my cousin and his fiancée (spoiler alert, ha!)
My cousin Julio has a special place in my heart because we grew up being very close to each other no matter the distance: me in the north of Spain, he just in the middle and 740 km apart. Since my auntie and my mom are from a very close-knit family we spent every year at least a month together when we were kiddos. He also has an older brother, the three of us were always playing together and they made me feel like the middle sister. They introduced me to videogames, and I vividly remember those Super Nintendo marathons or Game Boy battles during car rides.
This time Julio came home with very good news: he was engaged! With the pictures we took of them when they were almost starting to date 3 years ago in mind, I knew our pre-wedding present had to be an engagement session to display their renewed & continuous love. Luckily for us they love photography and had the same idea in mind, so they were also thrilled to take them.
For me it was not a regular session, in fact it felt more like having a hike with my family while yes, of course, taking lots of pictures of the loving couple, but just in a relaxed vibe. We even met the most affectionate stray cats and spent some time just petting (and admiring, crazy cat lady speaking) them. At the end of the session we still wanted to capture some more pictures with the four of us building memories together, thus all the photos you can see in this post happened: the in-between takes.
Isn’t it amazing to be able to capture those memories? I can picture the four of us in a few years looking back to these relaxed & fun pictures remembering those months before these two lovebirds got married.
