being the personal photographer of this family has truly been my honor over the past three years. i just love watching them grow and change from summer to summer. and i’m continually impressed with how they continually roll with the punches of life together.
you can follow maria (and jacob’s) fabulous blog here:
and each year during my drive back to denver following their photo shoot i am in awe of just how close, connected and in love with each other that they are. this year sara’s smiles were a bit harder to come by but all the more sweet when she did give them up. and jacob connected with the camera more than he ever has… those smiles for mom, dad, sarah (and my new d800 camera) took my breath away with their sincerity and power. spending time with these guys reminds me just what the term ‘family’ is all about. their love for one another is quite palpable and i leave thinking that despite their challenges they are the luckiest family i know. they understand the gift of taking life day by day. they understand the power of hope, love and togetherness. they understand life/work balance and what it means to truly live in the moment.
so until next summer–here are some images to enjoy! thanks guys for trusting me year after year to document your powerful family bond.
and rewind to our first photo shoot at home (we’d done one at the hospital too–a few years ago)
