Finn, Hazel, Ivy and Katie - A fun family session in Yorba Linda

This is one amazing and unique family. The children have different mothers, but share the same sperm donor father. They all met on the internet through a donor registration designed for families to connect with their genetic kindred. 

S. Krystal is the mother of Finn, Denise and CJ are the mothers of Hazel and Ivy and Mary is the mother of Katie. Two of the families live right here in Southern California and this was the first time they got to meet Katie and Mary who came all the way down from Indiana so she could bond with her siblings.

It was fun to see how much they looked alike, to see how well they got along and how well they didn't get along. Just like your average brothers and sisters. 

Goes to show that the typical family dynamic is ever changing and that as long as you have love, you have family.
