This started out as a post on different types of love, because of Valentine’s Day yesterday, but instead, it’s a gallery of family photos from the last year mostly. I started going further back than that, but realized I just had too many photos of life – of people being sweet to each other and loving each other and just having fun – all the reasons you start lifestyle photography in the first place. I also use the term “family” loosely. I tend to include close friends and my church community into my definition of family, so some photos are just of friends doing their thing. All of this to say, Happy Family Day Ontarians!
And my family (aunt, uncle and cousins), out for dinner last November.
My dad and brothers, when we were all young.
Always be grateful for your families, even when it’s tough. Not everyone has one, as weird as that sounds. And welcome people into your families; lots of people. It makes life so much richer and they will be grateful for it.
