What’s even more heart fulfilling than photographing a family just once, is when I photograph them year after year. When I can watch children grow, relationships change, and document what life’s about–year after year. This is my third year photographing Erica and Jeremy’s beautiful little family, and having gotten to know them over the years has been an overwhelming gift.2014-11-25_00152014-11-25_00162014-11-25_00032014-11-25_0001 2014-11-25_0002

This little runt was just a teensy toddler the first year we did photos–now he’s so handsome and loves to strut in front of the camera.2014-11-25_0004 2014-11-25_0007 2014-11-25_0008

Erica is hilarious–as both a mother and a person. From belting out frozen songs with fake wigs and recording them, to just singing tunes unabashedly with her kiddos, she makes memories with them that I know they will carry with them for a lifetime.2014-11-25_00182014-11-25_0005 2014-11-25_0009

Can we just reflect for a moment on how handsome and loving Dean is? Gracious.2014-11-25_00112014-11-25_0010 2014-11-25_0012

Jeremy’s got his humor too. I’m pretty sure if I lived in their house, I’d never be short of laughs.2014-11-25_0013 2014-11-25_0014

Erica, Jeremy, Annabelle, and Dean, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for allowing me another memorable year of documenting your family. And if you ever get the urge to belt out some tunes, I don’t have cable, so the spot in front of my TV is always open for your stage. (;
