Golliher Family | Boyce General Store | Alvaton, Ky.
Oh goodness, these are my dear, dear friends Brad and Brie. They were there when I wed my sweet husband, as I built my business in a storefront alongside Brie - doing the same, just cities away, when we found out Truman would be arriving 9 months later and she continues to hold my feeble little hand as I rock and roll through mommyhood with a thriving business. Brie and I share the same 'do it well or don't do it' problem, we overschedule, overcommit and listen to our bodies too little. She's just the best dang twin to walk through life with. Each fall I do my best to get to Bowling Green so I can photograph her family. And you know what? It's one of the highest highlights of each fall. Of course it's hard and tricky and boys are hard to contain. Occasionally Brad gets cranky at wild kiddos and Brie's worried about being a babe - but know what tops all those things? The way they love their kiddos. Know what tops that? The way those kiddos reflect the love of their mother. Oh gracious. I always walk away with little nuggets of mommy-love and daddy-bonding. And now that I have our little Truman, I value making these images for a family who cherishes them as I do, that much more. Enjoy our wonderful friends and their sweet family, and if you ever get a chance to head out to their endearing general store in the country, you will be so glad you did. Have a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit for me.
