The Carew Family

Families Personal

It just seems so fitting to be closing out 2014 with the Carew family. Why? Well, because you, dear Good Photo client, were a part of bringing this family together.

Really? Yes. Really.

Let me explain – the Carews have been faithfully praying for and pursing and working towards adopting a child for the past three years. And finally – FINALLY- their precious little boy came home from Ethiopia the day before Thanksgiving. (Check out his homecoming here)

That was such a wonderful day! But, here’s the thing about adoption, it’s really hard.

Adopting a child takes a lot of patience and faith and, well, finances. When the Carews committed to adding a child to their family, Good Photo committed to supporting them financially. And that’s where all of YOU came in. Every time you’ve given me the huge privilege of capturing your families, kiddos, engagements, weddings, and events, a portion of the profits went to supporting the Carews. And weather you did it on purpose or not, I’m just so thankful that we all could be a part of THIS. Here’s to a blessed 2015 – I pray it will be a year of growth, blessings, and maybe a few surprises for you and yours. Happy New Year!

The Tate Family [at home in the forest]
When an inquiry from a new client starts with "you can come to our property" and ends with "can we include our horses?" - you know it's going to be a fun shoot! Because of the freezing temps and high winds that November brought us, I had to reschedule with the Tate family three times, but boy am I glad that we persevered and am so thankful for the beautiful December evening that we had for these photos. The Tate kiddos were wonderful hosts and I loved capturing them where they live and play! Enjoy these bright wintery smiles!

A little funny for you
All of the travel planning and packing and dreaming about my boy has been a little distracting. In fact, I may or may not have unloaded an entire dishwasher of dirty dishes into my cupboard on Wednesday. And the other day, I definitely stepped into the shower with my underwear on. I can't wait to have my brain back.

My girl || 21 Months
Hey mama. I'm 21 months old now. Did you know that? Thank you for bringing me to this field with beautiful scenery and beautiful light. I see that you brought your camera. But I'm not gonna look at you, if that's okay. And I'm not gonna stand in the pretty light. Do you know what I will do? I'll explore this whole place. The.Whole.Thing. And I'll run farther away than you are comfortable with. And I'll touch everything. You know what else I want to do? I want to look at the water in the ditch. Yeah, that ugly ditch. I want to watch the water move and sparkle and wrinkle. And I want to throw leaves in that ditch and watch ...
