I can already tell that this session at Griffith Park will be one of my favorites for 2012. Meet the Sanders family! Rebecca and I grew up in the same small church in Oregon so we’ve known each other for a long time. She met her husband Erik while they were in college and sometime after they got married Erik came to work in the youth department at my church in Oregon as the church’s Youth Pastor. They are sort of my heroes and some of my favorite people on earth. As a young teen they taught me valuable lessons and helped me grow as a Christian in many ways and I’ll never forget their impact on my life. I am truly and forever thankful. Erik is now pastoring Bible Baptist Church in Everett, Washington and they came down to Southern California last week so we met up for their family session at Griffith Park in Los Angeles.
We found a few trails at the park that we liked and started walking around a bit. Rebecca had a small case of the giggles, Abby was the quiet one, Erik of course cracked a few of his brilliant jokes and Caleb was the perfect poser (that is when he wasn’t up a tree or in the bushes). I used to babysit Abby and Caleb so seeing them so grown up was weird. Time flies! I am now that lady that says “Hey, I used to babysit you and change your diapers”. I loved spending time with them and I hope you enjoy the photographs!
