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!

I've said it many times before - and I'll say it again - I LOVE it when families get together. Especially big families with lots of sweet grandchildren. AND ESPECIALLY when I get to capture them. As children grow and begin to have children of their own, it is a huge accomplishment to have everyone together in the same place at the same time. It takes a lot of logistical organization and communication and effort. But it really is so beautiful too. The adult siblings still teasing each other - but with more love after all these years. The cousins getting in as much playtime as the possibly can. The grandparents so proud of their grandc ...
Six Hours of Briggs
We got our boy about six hours ago. He's amazing. And he's huge. He cried for 90% of our time together this afternoon. Surprisingly, we still enjoyed every minute. We'll see how we feel about the crying tomorrow. I gave him a sweet potato puff as a peace offering. He threw it at my face. Today, it was funny, but I told him that if he tries that in about a month, he going to have to sit in time-out. It was a rough afternoon for the little guy - illustrated by the fact that he fell asleep sitting up on the bed by himself. And now that he's sleeping soundly, I kinda want to go wake him up and play with him.
The Hunt Family [Visiting Colorado]
Carrie and Jared both grew up in Colorado Springs and chose this past Christmas as the perfect time to return home and introduce their daughters to its beauty. I was lucky enough to go to high school with Carrie and was thrilled when she contacted me to say she would be in town AND ask if I would capture her family amongst some of our city's most classic scenery. The day of their session was cloudy and dreary and we were all disappointed that the mountains would not be making an appearance in their photos. However, the light dusting of snow was very "Colorado" and we still had plenty of beauty to work with. Thank you, Carrie, for making ...
