This family is precious. I believe that tells you everything you need to know about them, but in our current day of too many words and adjectives, I'm compelled to go on about how wonderful they are and tell you how we met. 

My friend called me one day and told me that one of the kids in this family spends several months out of the year in the hospital. Day in, day out, not leaving those 4 walls. She thought it would be fun (&special) for them to have pictures made of their entire family if we could arrange to do it in a season where everyone was well...and together. So that's just what we did. To say we had fun doing it is a colossal understatement.

Learning about what families endure and how they respond to difficult situations in life never looks like what I think it will look like. People blow me away with their faith and gratitude for what they are given every day. Meeting people like this family, touches my life and inspires me to want to be a better person. It's beautiful. They're beautiful. Today is beautiful.

This session is chocked full of nature-al things - water, fire, wind, stone, organics.....
laughter, relationships, love and goodness. 

What a wonderful idea to bring their couch and firepit! By brining these elements into their session, they created a comfortable and familiar place for them to be together. Then the magic just begins in front of the lens. Right, Amber? Magic. :)

Well, okay, alot behind....but who's counting? Cute pictures of cute families are in season anytime, right? :) 

Wanna know a completely useless but fun fact about this family? April did Fisher's nursery in Sock Monkey before Sock Monkey really made his come back. She's a trendsetter. This family makes me laugh...prolly more than I make them laugh. All those smiles you see in their images here...it's because they're so stinkin' funny they crack themselves up. I like funny people. :)

Just kidding. Unless of course this style suits you and if it does...I'm for real serious. :) 
Love these bold colors, patterns and textures in this environment. Monica has her style goin' on!
This family makes my heart sing. Being around them makes me want to create...and laugh. I love funny people who are stylish and have good values. I think I'll make that my new tagline. What do you think?
