I’ve had the privilege of photographing this fun and sweet family twice! The first time I met the Byers was 3 years ago when I second shot Sarah and John’s wedding and reception at their family ranch with my friend Emily Kicklighter. I left that wedding with an imprint of them on my heart. Their joy was infectious. All day, I observed how much these siblings love each other and how close knit their family is, which is a testimony to Mark and Dana’s parenting. Their relationship with the Lord was obvious in the precious prayer Mark prayed right before they left for the church. So, when Mark contacted me to photograph their family as a surprise for Dana’s birthday, I happily agreed. And, the bonus of getting to photograph the Byers again, was that I got to do it in one of my favorite places…Rosemary Beach, Florida. I love the people I meet and the places I get to go because of my camera.
