“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!”

“My dream family session always involves more than just taking pictures – instead it’s capturing memorable time spent together. Maybe it’s a party or a park, an art project or trying something new. But everyone gets involved and can get beautiful pictures that also carry meaning. I love sessions that involve extended family and showcase the family home since so many pictures at home are ordinary, it can be fun to have extraordinary pictures in your everyday setting. Of course, I have been dreaming of a beach photo shoot for years, and see it happening with the new Pleasure Pier as a backdrop. So probably that’s my current dream shoot…and luckily, it fills all my criteria since who doesn’t love a perfect beach day with the family?”

“I think the best pictures are the ones that are not forced, full of fun and laughter, and spontaneous. With that being said….I am sitting down at my kitchen table witnessing my spontaneous family. Anyone of these themes would make for a fun photo shoot.
My husband is cooking dinner and blaring country music…so somewhere like the Rodeo or wild Wild West were we could dance and show our Texan side.
My 3 1/2 yr old son just put on his Spider-Man outfit and is “flying” around the house ….a Halloween/ trick or treating shoot could be a blast.
I am sitting across from my 15 month old sitting in his high chair covered in his dinner and has the biggest smile….all our family around a big family table/picnic table outside.
All of these would be a good description of my family and show our crazy love able crew.”
