Gathering this many family members in one place at the same time is never easy, but oh so worth it! What a joy to photograph grandparents, children and their spouses and grandchildren together! Having portraits to hang on your walls for years to come showing the blessedness of family is always worth it!

Welcoming a new little one into your family can be exhausting and thrilling and wonderful all at the same time!

This is what fifty years of marriage looks like… it’s family for better or worse, children, grandchildren, and great-grand children, smiling and laughing together, and years of shared memories. I have said it many times in this space…
