It's more than just the annual Christmas card photo.

These are the photos that help you remember and hold onto the different stages of life, because time is flying faster than we can imagine.

When the kids were babies, and you were barely sleeping, but goodness they were cute and so tiny.

When the kids were wildly playful and never stopped running and laughing and goofing around, and the conversations held all sorts of crazy and imaginative questions and ideas.

When the kids somehow became teenagers and raising them became a little more complicated, and perhaps the most exhausting, but so deeply special.

Family is the biggest blessing, and it is my honor to take photos that reflect the unique love shared between each one of you, in whatever stage of life that may be.
