On this gloomy day in Georgia this session seems to be perfect! Perfect weather, lovely light, and most importantly a family I love! I’ve known Joel since I was a little girl. He’s my best friend’s older brother. I actually looked at a picture of him, Hannah, David, and myself hiking up their family summer vacation spot, Table Rock, just this morning. I remember the basketball days at school and in their driveway and his dark green Toyota Celica and of course his long hair – oh, childhood memories. He was the cool older brother for sure!
We definitely lost contact over the years as we grew older but when his adorable daughter made her very early debut I found myself in his sweet family’s life at least once a year. His wife, Shelly, is so sweet and it’s always so fun to catch up with her. She fits so perfectly into his family. It has been such a joy watching their little V grow up. She was so tiny the first time I met her and now look at her. . . so grown up!
I like that we can follow the line of our lives through relationship. It’s fun to have those people in your life, though maybe not close, will always be part of your life. I love the way their lives weave in and out and reminding you of where you come from. This family is reminder of my beach life and the family that is so very dear to me. Love you guys!
