This is the third month in a series that I am participating in with other photographer’s from across the globe. Each month we have a new theme and we devote a blog post and images to that theme. You can see the past two months here and here. This month’s theme is “How I View Happiness”. There are lots of things that bring me joy in my life, but the thing that brings me the absolute most happiness is my family. This exact day, seven years ago, I married my college sweetheart in St. John surrounded by our closest friends and family. It was a very small and intimate wedding, only 30 people, but it was the most amazing day. I didn’t think I could be any happier. Then three years later we welcomed our first baby to the world and a few years later our second. With each child, I found more love and happiness than I thought ever possible. They are my world. I took these photos about a week ago when I was in Galveston for another family’s session on the beach. We were able to spend the weekend there relaxing and even my parents drove up one day! All my favorite people, hanging out at the beach enjoying our time together and just having fun… this is exactly how I view happiness. I’m not sure that it gets much better than this.
