Clearly, I’m going to be incredibly biased and say the most wonderful things about this family. Why? Because this is obviously the cutest, most wonderful family on so many levels. And also because that adorable mom you see happens to be my sister and my very best friend.
I just love them all so much. Will and I have looked up to Chris and Sissy as an example since we were dating many years ago. We would, as a dating couple, drive to visit them. I remember watching them do married life together – no kids, just the two of them. They lived a simple, wonderful life, and they loved one another so well.
Then came the kids – yes, a lot of them! How fun it has been to have a front row seat in watching this family grow. I made up my mind a long time ago that I wanted my nieces and nephews to know their Aunt Nancy and Uncle Will. We’ve had a blast hosting them at our home at different times over the past several years, so seeing these images honestly melts my heart. I know these tiny people. Even the three that are identical look SO different to me in these images, because I know them.
And I sit here, typing all of this, it hit me : this is why family photography is so incredibly important. I don’t have kids of my own yet, but my sister’s family has grown so quickly before my eyes – it’s amazing how time flies. To be honest, life gets crazy, and there are always excuses why it’s easier not to take family photos. But it’s so important to stop, right where you are, and remember this season. Capture it. Freeze time for just a moment.
These kids are only going to keep growing, keep getting bigger, keep changing. And it’s always worth it to stop and take time to capture their seasons of change. (To see how much they’ve grown through the years, click here and here.) Thank you, Blantons, for loving me and allowing me to capture you sweet family time and time again!
