Capturing the same family year after year after year after year is probably my favorite thing to do in photography for those above listed reasons.   This is my 4th consecutive year taking the Jackson’s family photos.  2012 was my first year and I was honored to do them every year afterwards and then just last week.  We met up at Belle Isle, which I have really wanted to go to for a long time, and there were so many great spots for pictures!

The pastor (who is also Mrs. Tonya’s dad :) was reading the Bible verse from Genesis 2:18 which says, “It is not good that man should be alone.”  Daddy said “Amen!” and I think Uncle Greg agreed. :)

It got a bit crowded when all of them had to pour their sand in together. :)
