I have been so fortunate to work with the Choike (Jamie, Jan, Adelynn & Eleanor) family since Jamie & Jan tied the knot 8 years ago. Jamie & Jan welcomed sweet Adelynn into their family 4 years ago through an open adoption. This weekend, I had the opportunity to photograph not only Jamie, Jan, Adelynn, and her sister Eleanor, but also Adelynn's birth parents and birth siblings. We spent the morning checking out the fun exhibits at the Grand Rapids Children's Museum. What a beautiful display of FAMILY. The love felt and shared within this group of people is truly remarkable.
Shooting in the rain can be even better than a perfect sunny day. Ask any photographer. Once you embrace it, your photos can be better than you ever imagined.
