The Alexander Family Story

Let me start out by saying how blessed I feel to be given the gift and passion for telling stories with my camera.....AND that my heart is going to explode if I keep it up!! I mean, seriously, each and every time I fall in love with each and every couple/person/family.

This afternoon was no different with Alex, Wendy, Caitlin and Parker. I had an amazing time with the awesome and cool Alexander family around downtown Austin.

Before we get to my favorites and their slideshow, I'm going to take a minute to tell a story....so bear with me.

Alex is the Pastor of Family Life at LHC.
Alex might not remember the 1st time we met.....he married Renae and Jeff almost a year ago.
Alex might not remember the 2nd time we met.....my first time attending LHC with Renae in August last year.
Alex might not remember when he visited LHC Downtown on September 21, 2008 and sang Unwell during the service.....the day that I left LHC a Christian.

You see, even though Alex might not recall these small moments, I believe that God puts people in your life for a reason....and I believe that Alex, along with others (I think God was working overtime to get to me), was sewn into my life to be part of my journey to Him.

Since then, I've chatted with Alex and his family on a few different occasions, and they are just plain fantastic. So, with all of that being said, I was extra giddy to be telling their family story today.

I'm sure going to miss LHC, and ALL the friends I've made there. I hope you all enjoy your family story!!











I had to post this one twice.....I can't get enough of it! Caitlin, you're beautiful!



Don't forget to check out the slideshow too!
