Those of us who are in this world to educate-to care for-young children have a special calling: a calling that has very little to do with the collection of expensive possessions but has a lot to do with worth inside of heads and hearts.
I got to photograph the adorable Graves family and their three beautiful girls at Lake Las Vegas. They were so much fun and I loved the three sweet personalities that I got to see. One of the main reasons I love to photograph children is because even if not everyone is smiling and perfect, this is who they are at this exact time. So even if everything isn't "picture perfect," it's so beautiful to capture those moments of childhood. Than you again Graves family!
Alysia is someone I've gotten to meet through friends and I'm so thankful that I have. She's a beautiful person in so many ways and her family is incredible. I got wind that she wanted to do a family photo session before her son left for the military (um, AMAZING!) and I was thrilled that they trusted me to do it.
The love this family has for one another is inspiring. They're there for one another and "strength" and "courage" aren't strong enough words to express these amazing people. It was an honor to do this service to those who serve and love so many. Thanks you guys. -A
