Families are forever…

Families are Forever…For some families, this statement causes massive anxiety and dredging feelings, but for others, it brings laughter, happiness, and sweet memories along with it. This family right here is the second feeling. They are all so sweet and loving.

As you get older, you realize that pictures are some of the most treasured and important things you have that you’re able to look back on. Grandparents get older, and reality hits and you can’t do anything about it- it’s life. Well, even in the midst of growing older and living separate lives, running after kids, working, and everything in between, this family set aside time to get family pictures done. Even though it was chilly, it was so worth it! Joan and Loyal are still as much in love today, if not more, than on their wedding day. Loyal just loves her more than you can imagine. The way he looked at her was truly inspiring, and I pray Caleb looks at me the same way when we have been married for 57 years! They are truly an amazing pair. The family that has blossomed beneath them is just as incredible.

Brenda, Loyal and Joan’s daughter, and her husband Greg were able to make it to the shoot, along with their kids, Travis and Heather. I have worked a handful of times with both Heather, her husband Ryan, and their adorable girls, Braelynn and Brystol. They all are so kind and well-mannered. They did a terrific job as parents, and now grandparents! I am so lucky to know such people and to constantly be inspired and reminded of how lucky I am when I have sessions like these!

Also, the four-generation picture we got was absolutely timeless. How awesome is that? Not many people get to have that in their lifetime!

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture these images. I am so lucky to have such amazing clients like you and your family!

I’ll Be There For You,
