About 7 years ago I photographed my first wedding— Tim & Katie Swavely.

Fast forward to just after their first baby, PJ, was born, I was thrilled to hear from Katie and plan a family photo session for the holidays. That annual tradition has continued year after year ever since, and this year there was a NEW Swavely to photograph!

Tim & Katie are so special to me. Being able to document their growing family over the years is the coolest experience, and one of the most rewarding parts of my little photography life. Each year, I see PJ grow more and more into a polite, handsome little man, and this year I got to meet Rhi for the first time (who may be a LITERAL doll) and photograph their whole family together.

Reflecting on the cool winter day Katie & Tim got married and to now see their two babies interacting is surreal. THIS is what is so wonderful to me about being a photographer. The relationships I create with people that can very well last a lifetime.
