About a month ago my cousin April hired me to take photos of a family she knows; she thought they needed a new family photo so she surprised them with a photoshoot. The Rubio family - Yolanda, Leo, Mauricio, Mariana and Coral - was very welcoming, they invited us in to their home for lunch and then after the photoshoot they shared a white chocolate cake with us. Yum. Jaime, Yolanda's husband was working that day so he wasn't able to join in but the rest of the family had a great time. Even their new dog joined in on the photoshoot.
"Rock, Paper, Scissors" to decide who gets the soccer ball first.

The Rubio's new dog, all the family members call him by a different name because they've only had him a few months and haven't decided on a permanent name yet. A neighbor gave them the dog for free because he was completely flea-ridden, so they took him in and gave him baths and got rid of his fleas and now is a member of the family. A very sweet little dog.
And to finish it off, a couple photos of April and her boyfriend, Tim, who were there as well.
