As my family grows, grows up, and moves forward in life I am ever more grateful for all the years and years of photographs I have created. We have our own quirky traditions that have been carried on in specific annual photographs which mark their growing bodies and different stages in their lives and as a family. I cannot stress enough the importance of not only recording your children, but also as parents, getting in the photographs yourselves! The time really does pass quickly and every day is precious. This East Grand Rapids family is entering several big milestones with one son prepping for college and the other two finishing their last year of elementary school. This is going to be a momentous year for them and I was so happy to be there to document this time.
