FAMILY  |  08.28.14

The Cardell family might as well be related to me.  It has almost been a year since I stepped out full time into my photography and church position.  The same time that I left Chick-fil-A Monroe after being there for a year and a half.  During my tenure at CFA, I met Sydney and her family.  What a fun, young and loving family.  Being one of four kids myself, I immediately felt a connection because they also had four children.  Well not so much children anymore.

The Cardells won the top spot from Daddy Daughter Date night because of their massive Facebook following.  Chances are some of you are reading this post who voted for them to received these photos.  What's funny is that it has taken this long to get everything coordinated together for our session.  Just a good reminder to not procrastinate those family photos because it can fly by way too fast.

Back to our time together.  I made the usual fool of myself to get all four of them giggling or smiling at the same time.  But I'm okay with that because their smiles are awesome.  I didn't realize at the time while I was shooting away how difficult the transition and new changes to the family would be.  Jona wrote a moving Facebook status later that afternoon, and I knew then how important this session would be to this awesome family.

I'm glad that I could play a small part in your journey.  Here's to many more memories as we watch your blossoming family grow!
