B+W Wednesday: Four Generations

What an honor to be able to shoot this family. The matriarch is an amazing woman ... strong in faith and generous in love. She raised ten children, one of whom I became friends with in college. I have been blessed by all of them for three decades. I was so happy to be able to capture these images of four generations, from one year old to eighty-six.
