I met the Rankin family back when Noelle (the oldest daughter) was just 2 or 3 months old and have had the pleasure of calling them friends and watching their family grow all these years! They are some of the most kind, generous, and witty people you'll ever meet! Their children are full of energy and have wonderful imaginations! One of my favorite parts of this photo session was when they sat on the road with their books. Mark (an English professor at JMU) brought a book from 1593 (!!!) and I must admit, I was nervous even touching it! Enjoy this beautiful family!
