It’s a joy to spend time with this family. Carolyn and Ben react to their kids with patience and delight, in a way that always leaves a mark on me. Two year old Teddy especially stole my heart this time, but I loved all of the hidden gems of connection between this family!
Here are some favorites from my recent time with the Stasi Family. I just loved capturing their playfulness and affection. Here are Jenny, Mike, Kennedy, and Peyton.
The Tomlins have no shortage of people that love them. Their 50 year marriage has cultivated a robustly loving family, and a whole party’s worth of friends and colleagues that would do anything for them. I loved seeing the reunion of the cousins that once played together as kids. I loved hearing the stories that several of Mike and Jayme’s dearest friends told, and watching them react in their own distinct ways, and sometimes exactly in sync.
It was also touching to see our good friend TJ and his sister Shari cry as they toasted their mom and dad for what a solid job they had done as a couple. Cheers to you Mike and Jayme!
One of my best friends connected me with this delightful family. She said that they are some of her very favorite people, and after spending a few hours with them, they are some of my new favorite people. Here are Shelby, Bo, Pierce, and Merritt.
