We Are Fa-mi-ly! ~ The Nicholas Family

August 28, 2014

Connections, connections, connections! So here’s the story of how I got connected with the Nicholas family. As I was a young budding photographer, Vanessa, the Program Director for Faith Connections, had total faith in me (no pun intended) in capturing their “Theology on Tap” events. What could a photographer ask for? Free wings, great talks and conversations sparked by inspiring speakers while doing what you love to do best…take photos! Well, one thing led to another and they hired me to do a formalized photoshoot for images used on marketing material and their website. I am indebted to their kind consideration, as those sessions had helped me grow technically and creatively.

Fast forward through major events of getting married and having a son, Vanessa and Michael have been great friends to keep in touch with over the years. And in this case, they surprised their parents with this family photoshoot, as they celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. How inspiring! To capture what two people have accomplished: three wonderful kids, a son-in-law and an adorable grandson, Liam, with striking blue eyes!

Shot in their backyard, we enjoyed taking formalized and candid pictures. Liam certainly enjoyed reading books with Mommy and Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa and playing with his toys with Auntie Ashley and Uncle Kyle and reacting to fun sounds from everyone. I loved the feeling of “togetherness” with all of them which made my job really easy.

As we are inspired by the connection of the Nicholas family, may we – in our own way – count each family member as blessings, as each year passes by.
