The best is yet to come. | Yakima

World, meet my friend Emily. We went to high school together, more years ago than I care to admit, and we’ve both found our way back home in our adult lives. She recently invited me over to spend some time photographing her family’s everyday life. I was thrilled. I got to meet her husband, Mark, and their sweet son, Daniel, for the first time. What a beautiful family! Their home was full and happy. And this little boy was truly a pleasure to meet. As I edited their photos, I couldn’t help but contemplate the text on his shirt (one of a few shirts that busy evening): THE BEST IS YET TO COME. For someone intent on capturing the beauty of this exact moment for families, Daniel’s shirt was a much-needed reminder. There is also so much beauty ahead….
