Ties That Bind - What Defines Family?

I had been consistently taking photos and blogging, then mid June hit and I lost momentum. I'm not sure what to blame - our area started to open up, we started going back into the office so I got busy with other things. Then I had to travel for work to a location in Kentucky, about 4 hours away by car. I stayed in Kentucky for over a week and will drive back sometime this week or next.

Regardless of that, today I'm sharing photos taken at the end of May - the "family" of Senior Addison. Why the Quotes? Several years ago, the KO family formed by combining two family units. Two sets of parents, two sets of offspring and two sets of dogs. The two families were great friends so they decided to buy a house together and join their distinct clans together. They called it their "great social experiment". The union dissolved due to new job opportunities outside the area. The KO family asked me to take photos of their clan before they parted ways. I love the challenge of new things - this large group with their dogs certainly lived up to that challenge!

O-K Families For the group shots I ended up learning how to "head swap" for an optimal group shot. I only had to do this two times (thank goodness).

The Adults still get along even after living together for 3+ years.

And to earmark this unique time - pandemic masks.

O-K Families Masked Up

Family - certainly not defined by blood, but by love, respect and friendship.

Great character shots, Shirley. I always love your portraits. I don't think I'd be good at communal living. I'm too much of a loner. Keep well on your travels.
