These people are some of my favorite. I’m allowed to say that because they are my family. So many little details in the photos from this session speak to the kind of wonderful people they are. From the athletic clothes giving clues to their family adventures and commitment to caring for their bodies, to the involved coffee-making process that’s a clue to the emerging coffee roasting business my brother is working on, to the books and papers showing their priority attention to loving God and caring for the people of the Church… just a million small things that speak to a beautiful, vibrant family life.
And my favorite shot: the one where mom and dad are trying to have a moment on the back step whilst all four children watch them through the window. Isn’t that how it goes?!
Being a Grand Rapids family photographer is always great, but especially so when you get to turn the camera in the direction of your own family.
