Family Photos 2018

It’s that time again!! Are you ready for a gazillion family photos? If not, might I suggest our Breakfast category, shrimp pasta, or a hot bowl of beef chili?

I love these personal posts the most. It’s like opening up the family album and sharing it with you because you are, after all, part of the Natasha’s Kitchen family!

We’ve had my friend Alla of In A Dream Photography take our family photos for the past few years (Here are the photos for 2017, then 2016, and from 2015)Β  She captures light, life and love so perfectly. Her photos are warm and real and they make me smile big.

Alla also joined our team at Natasha’s Kitchen this year and we are so thankful for her!

I am so blessed and thankful to call Vadim my husband. He is the sweetest man and my right hand in everything. He sweeps me off my feet every single day. The more time I spend with him (and we are together every day), the more I want to spend time with him.

These two are 6 years apart but they love each other so much. They argue like siblings, tease and steal each other’s toys but their love is unconditional.

This handsome young man has a heart of gold. He won my heart long just as soon as I found out I was pregnant with him and he thinks I’m the best cook in the world. He tells me this when I make his favorites like lasagna, this chicken avocado salad, and creamy shrimp artichoke dip!


I think it’s pretty obvious everyone adores the “baby” in the family, although according to her, she’s not a baby, but “the sister.”

I want to turn the screen around and talk to you for a moment to say thank you. I appreciate YOU so much. I mean that in the most sincere way. It’s a wonderful life and such a privilege to be doing what we love.

You’ve been there for us for the past 9 years, sharing our recipes with the people you love. It’s such an honor to hear when one of our recipes graced your dinner table and had a picky eater come back for seconds (the best!!). I can’t thank you enough for following along with our blog and being so completely wonderful.

This Thanksgiving, I am truly thankful for YOU, my friends. Thank you for being part of the Natasha’s Kitchen family.

Loads of Love,

Natasha, Vadim and the kiddos πŸ™‚

    I just adore the family photos. Oh, how the little one has grown so much. She is definitely right, she’s “the sister” not the baby anymore. Last year she could still pass as a baby but not today. They grow up so fast, but rest assured Mom, she’ll always be your lil baby!
    Anyone can see the love you and you husband share for eachother and of your kids. You are a BEAUTIFUL FAMILY!
    Is there, maybe, a little suprise behind your dress? Possibly maybe a lil bump? I just have an inkling. The years and spacing would be about right. I don’t see you having just 2 children.
    Mine are all spaced 5 or more years apart. Okay, so my 3rd and final was 10 years from the first but now they are the closest, love eachother to the moon & back.
    Keep us up and keep posting pictures of your beautiful family. It’s so nice to watch your family grow. Indeed we of sorts, kind of your adopted family and sometimes those are the best πŸ€— Love you always my sweet, beautiful, talented, enchanting friend πŸ’–
    God bless you and your beloved family ❀ XOXO

      You’re so kind! Thank you, Wendy! Yes, these little ones sure do grow quickly. Sometimes I wish we could just slow time down just a tad. No bump there, just the dress shape accentuates that area. Thank you πŸ™‚ Reply
