Family = Love

I have family all over the place. Which means I may have one of the largest families ever. Granted, I'm not blood related to most of them but I may as well be! And I love it. I'm so blessed to have so many amazing people in my life that love me as much as they do. Butch and Nell are two of those such people. In 2004 I moved to Brussels, Belgium to work with them and teach English. As missionaries, they had already lived in a variety of places and had been in Brussels for 7 or 8 years by the time I got there. Their daughter was getting ready to graduate high school and attend college at the University of South Carolina (tragic, I know) and their son was just starting high school.

A couple of years after I came home, their assignment in Brussels was up and they moved back to the states. The best news? They were going to be less than 2 hours away from me! And I have fully taken advantage of them being so close and have been lucky to see them (and both of their children!) many many times, which has only brought us all closer.

Butch and Nell were passing through Greenville this weekend so I emailed them earlier in the week to see if they would want to do pictures while they were here. Their next assignment is going to be in Montreal, which means I'm not going to get to see them anywhere near as much as I've been lucky enough to. But, now I have a few pictures to remember them by. And holy cow... y'all photograph SO well! Seriously, Nell you are gorgeous and Butch... you were joking but you really worked it!

Butch & Nell, I'm going to miss both of you SO much. Thank you for everything you have done for me over the past 6 years and for loving me as much as you do. I don't know that I'll ever be able to thank you enough. Je vous aime. Que Dieu vous bénisse. Bisous!
The lighting in here was delicious. You may laugh, but it's SO true. It was amazing.
If you know Nell, you can't look at this next picture and NOT hear her laugh! I love it.

They could be in a magazine...
This is so them!! I love it.

Those are great Sabrina!! So, I really want you to do David's 2 and Andrea's 4 yr old pictures, preferably between mid feb- mid march. What dates do you have open? Where do you think would be good? It would be fine to do them around here somewhere if you thought you could find a good spot... Let me know ;)

I'm a Greenville, SC based wedding and portrait destination photographer who loves to be behind the lens. I look forward to hearing what you think about the posts and images as I work with amazing people to capture life and give them images they love.
