Susan and I met nearly 13 years ago, when our oldest boys were toddlers in a playgroup together. She has been a dear friend all this time, as we’ve watched our boys become teenagers, with their siblings not far behind. Over the years, we’ve shared laughter and tears. I will forever remember this family as part of my “village” … you know, that village we all need to raise these children with whom God has entrusted us. I can’t imagine how anything in life is possible without that village. Susan and Bryan, thank you for your friendship these years, and thank you for the honor of being your photographer.
