I love photographing siblings! It’s so fun watching them interact and lovingly tease each other. It reminds me of my relationship with my siblings. In my family we have a saying, “buggin is lovin!” So for me, bugging is the universal sign for love.
I recently took picture for my friend Paul Cook. Paul and I served as youth group leaders together. Serving beside him was such a pleasure. He is just one of those people who tells it like it is but always from a place of love. He lives his life in such an authentic way, it pushes me to do the same. I look up to him as a Christian but also as a father. This guy and his wife have managed to raise two great kids. I’ve know Chloe and Jackson for many years. They are both smart, kind, respectful, and hard working. As a parent myself, I know that all we really want is to raise good kids. Paul has and is doing that and I’m thankful for the example he’s modeled for me.
