This precious family asked me back in winter to come photograph them during their annual August family vacation and I was so honored to capture these images that represent the close bond this family has. They have been vacationing together every year since their children were young and now, even though they are adults and beginning their own families, they still make this time together a priority.
Mimi is the matriarch of this bunch and what a young and beautiful spirit she has. Seeing the relationship between a grandparent and grandchildren through the camera lens has become something I am blessed to witness often and each time, it fills my heart. What a gift to have the wisdom and encouragement from someone who has lived so much life and despite going through difficulty and pain, still radiates with joy.
As beautiful as these faces are, the thing I am most drawn to are the hands! So symbolic and precious!
Isn't she just the best? I can only hope to have this much spunk in my eighties!
Love these newlywed shots!
...and seasoned love of 30 years. Each one so beautiful in its own way.
