The Mizell Family is from my hometown in Southern Illinois, and they have played a huge role in my life since as far back as I can remember. Megan and I became friends all the way back to when we were 4 years old! We have gone through every stage of life together. So of course I was beyond honored when she asked me to capture an extended family session in Southern Illinois to commemorate her parent’s 50th wedding anniversary!
Not only did I get the chance to capture this beautiful family, but their session was at Barb and Larry’s beautiful home! I have spent many weekends here when I was growing up and have so many wonderful memories with this family at this incredibly special place. I couldn’t help but get extremely sentimental during the session and ok, I may have been brought to tears the entire time I was editing! There’s just so much love and joy between all of these people.
Barb, Larry, Megan & Margo – It’s not everyday you get asked to do an extended family session to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary, and it was such an honor to capture your sweet family at a place that’s so special to you. This is what it’s all about. And this is why I do what I do. I hope your entire family is able to look back at these photos and treasure them for years to come!
