There’s an amazing perspective accompanied with being the oldest member of a family. I am luckily enough that I got to watch my little brother find the woman of his dreams, marry into an amazing family, and ultimately become a dad! It was such an amazing experience to watch my little brother become a dad. Like a cliche movie I had a rush of emotions when I saw him look at his baby for the first time in the delivery room. I remembered the toddler that scared the delivery man when he answered the door naked, and the little boy that let me run over him in my power-wheels, and the man that took my boy on rides and did boy things while my husband was deployed.
Naturally I hope for his happiness and I feel so incredibly grateful that his in-laws treat him like he is their own. If I’m being completely honest though, I have to confess that I love redheads. When my brother and sister in law found out they were pregnant my very first thought was not, “is it a boy or girl,” it was “I pray this baby has red hair.” As luck (and DNA) would have it they had the most gorgeous redheaded little boy, and he stole my heart upon arrival.
Meet the Griffiths family, the very heart and soul of my “other,” hometown of Beaver, Utah. They are genuinely kind, loving, and a complete joy to be around. The session took place just up the road from the Griffiths’ home at Merchant Valley. I love the Beaver Mountains, and have so many great memories hiking, fishing, and enjoying a literal breath of fresh mountain air in this beautiful setting. I’m so excited to introduce such an amazing family to you!
