What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life —
to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot
The first time my camera captured this precious family was when Samuel was just a wee newborn baby! Jodie and Michael will chuckle at that description of Sammy….. wink wink! Say no more!
Being able to return again and again with my camera to record special occasions and for updated family photos, is one of the joys of what I do. It’s like catching up with friends…… I wish it could happen more often! The Verwey family’s journey hasn’t been a smooth one…. but they’ve risen above and what I noticed most about them this time was how they are stronger…together. I’m finding it hard to put into words, the feeling I had while I was with them this time. It was of a family that has definitely grown into each other, their branches entwining around and inwards rather than scattering outwardly.
Charlotte shared with me one of her wishes which was to be friends forever with her best friend Holly.
Samuel tells me he “needs lots of wishes” and oh how true that is! You have the whole world in your hands, little guy!
Jodie and Michael, together you are doing an awesome job nurturing two very sweet and well adjusted little people.
That’s not as easy at it seems …. and I want to thank you for choosing to entrust me with your family photography again but more than that for being my friends.
