Just in case you missed Lisa McGown’s story, here it is:


“This year, brings a huge milestone in our family, that coincides with Michelle’s birthday giveaway. August 7, my husband and I will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. What a journey it has been! Those twenty years have brought many blessings (the greatest of which are our four amazing children), many joys, our fair share of tears, and great life lessons. But in those years we have seen the goodness of the Lord and His blessings poured out on our family. We don’t have the biggest house on the street or a life with no difficulty, but the six of us have a love for each other that binds us and carries us through each day…and each day is another opportunity to build more memories and stories that will be treasured in our hearts for a lifetime.

Only Michelle can capture the essence of our family in a photograph. That special smile, the expressions, the connection between each of us, the love we share, these are the things that can be seen through her lens. And these are the photographs that we need to preserve the memories of this time in our life.

A family session this year would be so very special. I would love to preserve the memories of this 20 year milestone. In years past, family pictures have revolved around the kids…and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. But this time, I would love to focus the session on the love that was the beginning of this beautiful family. I would love Michelle to capture this part of the story, not only for my husband and I as we celebrate our anniversary, but for my children to always remember that a love centered in Christ keeps a family strong!  Thanks for the opportunity to share our story and happy birthday, Michelle!”


Lisa, happy 20th anniversary!! Wow… what an inspiration you guys are!!!  I can’t wait to photograph your sweet family!!!!
