The Goodnight Family

This is such a beautiful family.  Last time I saw them their little boy was six months old and I can't believe how big he has gotten.  I love so many of the pictures we got from their fall family session.

With that said, I am not sure I have ever taken an image that has brought me to tears.  But, after spending an afternoon with this family and getting home to edit images, I found myself staring at one of the pictures with tears running down my face.  
After we completed the family pictures they wanted to bring their dog out to take some images.

I had photographed Grayson when he was 6 months old, and he had just turned two and in that time their family dog had drastically gown downhill.  As I watched Grayson and his daddy love on this sweet dog my heart ached for them.  I love my dog two years ago and it still feels like yesterday.  Dogs are such a huge part of families.  

Grateful they let me document such a great love.
