This experience was fun and memorable. Why fun? Well, I have known Simeon and Dani since I first started teaching and now that I am in my fifth year of work I have witnessed a beautiful couple grow to an even more beautiful family. Their little girl who is approaching three is full of energy, joy and spirit that showcases the presence of God within the household. Their newest addition has many of the calm attributes of the mother and equable characteristics of the father... all in all he's awesome.
Arriving at the Wharton household on this chilly Fall morning was great because this sweet little girl answered the door saying "are you taking my pictures?" I couldn't help but enliven immediately and say, "yes of course!" then she let me in their house.
Shortly after waiting we ventured down the street to the local park and the light was vibrant for this Saturday morning. Using the nifty fifty I peered through the view finder to see what I described above...a beautiful family. I am grateful I was able to have the opportunity to capture their moments that they plan to share with many others during the holiday.
