The Kiefers! I love these people. We've been in the same church together for a long time, and they serve on staff and bless the city of Durham so much. Every time I am around Charles and Tiffany, I am inspired, challenged, and encouraged. Tiffany has been like an older sister to me since we moved back to North Carolina, and has gently and persistently invited me into several different leadership/service roles, which I probably would not have pursued on my own. She has changed me and helped me grow so much as a person, wife, and mother in the last two and a half years.
So I was super honored when she asked me to do their family photos! Look at all these beautiful babies!
We spent a muggy October evening exploring the American Tobacco Campus (which is such a gem in downtown Durham), practicing our silly faces and high jumps.
Also, how awesome are Joseph's yellow pants? I need them!
I love seeing the broad range of personalities in big families — each one of these kids is so endearing and quirky and wonderful, and it's fun for me to try to capture these aspects of them in photographs. Also, they all have the BEST hair.
Kiefers, you guys are amazing and I am privileged to know you! Thanks for the honor of photographing your wonderful family.
