Rich Beyond Measure {Graham Family Photography}

I had the opportunity to photograph this amazing family a couple of weeks ago.  I have photographed some of them before (here and here and here).  However, when Stephanie called me to see if I would be available to photograph her family, I told her I was swamped (I was actually in Phoenix at the time) and was about to say no when she let me know her family's special circumstances.   I am glad that I met them for a little while at a local park...I am all the more blessed to know them all!!

Rich is Stephanie's dad and he is having quite a fight with cancer. But he has these amazing people around him fighting with him.  Below is Rich and his partner John.  I have to say that I was so touched by John's care for Rich.

As you can see from the picture above, this little guy is the only grandchild (so far!) and all I can say is that he is REALLY loved!!  Two sets of grandparents to spoil him!!!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this picture of Stephanie and her dad!!  I think Rich has the best smile and laugh!

Stephanie and her brother like to goof around a little...then Stephanie's husband got into the act too!  But don't worry...I didn't let him pick them both up!!

One of the fun things about this session was that Stephanies's mom and her husband (Tracy and Wayne) were there too...(yes, it is a little bit of a different family structure!!)...but I got to photograph her with her two kids.  Even though he is an adult, Mat reacted just like a kid with a kiss from mom.  Love it!!

This little guy grabbed his grandpa's cane and I couldn't resist...

Stephanie and her men (her brother, dad and son).  They all have the most amazing blue eyes!!

It was a pleasure to be with this family!!  They are rich beyond measure in relationship, love, and connection....and that will always make for a great photo session!!
