Five and a half years, one wedding, two babies, and a Marine later we finally got around to a family portrait session for this amazing couple and family. Brian and Erica are one of the special couples whose faith and commitment are an inspiration.
Back in May of 2010 I had the privilege of being Brian and Erica’s wedding photographer. It was a beautiful wedding ceremony at the golf course followed by a warm and lovely reception at the family home.
One year later, their precious Faithy was born, and just days before their 5th anniversary this year, they welcomed little Nathanael. All life changes worthy of a family portrait! But the final event that pushed Erica over the We-Need-a-Family-Portrait edge was the recent graduation of their eldest son, Philip, from Marine Boot Camp. With only a short window of opportunity between boot camp and leaving for the Marine Combat Training we put together a quick family portrait session.
I am so blessed to know these wonderful parents. Parents who take on the challenges of step-parenting with the most respect and care, raising a rambunctious child with special needs to be joyful and secure in their love, and happily tending to the never ending tasks of a newborn. All this while pursuing God’s plan for their own futures as well.
My hat’s off to you! Ooh Rah!
