Jonathan + Sherri | Family

July 18, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This family just so happens to be one of my favorites. ;o) That tall chap in the middle is my oldest brother.  He found himself a small but mighty little woman in Sherri, and they have four beautiful kids.  

Twelve years later, these two know what it is to fight for real relationship, and not just settle for coexistence.  They'll be honest, and tell you it isn't always easy.  But you'll see it in the look in their eyes when they talk about the way they do life now: 

it is so very worth it.

This is Alex.  He's ten, and a big dreamer with an eye for details and a passion for football.

Taylor is already a leader.  Love this little chic so much.  She's loves getting prettied-up, but that won't keep her from playing hard.  Taylor is a doer too.  She'll make things happen with a grace and ease that blesses and serves those around her.

One of my favorites...

Seriously, you guys.  This look.  Adrian may have been going for tough, but he nailed adorable. 

These two are so grown up…not sure when that happened?

On a side note, I have been SO blessed by "doing life" with my sister-in-law Sherri.  She's the sort of person who knows who she is and Whose she is, and she generously shares of herself with her family, friends, church, and lately over at a fabulous new blog called Shift Your Normal.  She teaches, shares, and writes from her spirit - the place where she is connected to Jesus.  That's what makes her relationships and her life, so very richliving from that Place of Connectionand that wealth spills over as blessing into the lives of everyone around her.  For me, she's been an evidence of Jesus.

Reading is a family hobby, so everyone grabbed a book from home to bring to the session.

Oh, Amari.  This girl is like a tiny little burst of intense sunshine wherever she lands.  She will win your heart in two seconds flat.  There is something within Amari that evokes such a uniquely beautiful response from people. 

Adrian is definitely going to conquer the world.  He's full of brawn and toughness, but has the sweet sensitivity to pick flowers for his mom...

Since they're a game playing bunch, a little round of Go Fish was in order to finish up the session.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11
