In Family ~ Watch Them Grow

Becoming Dad…

Meet one of my wonderful clients ~ one that I have been working with for years and getting to know for that long as well.

One of the major perks of being a photographer is the relationships I get to build. Photographers have the unique privilege and honor to be involved in very special and oftentimes intimate life moments. Whether it be a wedding, a birth, an anniversary, a graduation or just life as it is, this is a GIFT to me. With repeat clients (who I consider friends) and individuals/families at all life stages, it is a constant reminder to mentally take notes and remember life in the NOW….because time doesn’t stop and time doesn’t slow down and time certainly doesn’t go backwards.

There are many families that have been on this journey with me from the beginning. New or old friends – they all grow a special place in my heart.

I wanted to tell a bit of one young family’s story through a small sampling of photos.

Back in the day, I started off taking sports shots and trying to find ways to weave meaning into the end products. This is B when he was still in college.

The story doesn’t stop there! Nope – I am thankful to continue our relationship and continue capturing moments and seasons in their lives. Here is the latest.

THIS makes photography more than a job. It is not only a gift to those I get to serve – but also to me as I build authentic friendships and am reminded daily…time keeps on moving. Try to LIVE and BE in the moment.
