When the five Schwartz children tragically lost both parents in three years' time, their Uncle Sion and Aunt Shannon became guardians of all five. With three of their own, the Alford home grew to  eight kids between the ages of four and fifteen (WOW).

I had the privilege of photographing the Alfords in 2009, soon after their family doubled in size...from five to ten.

What a difference six years makes! Since then, God has done so much in each person's life individually and together as a family. Four kids are in college now (also WOW) and life keeps spinning joyfully on.

Pastor Sion is an executive worship pastor at Gateway Church and Shannon serves on the Gateway Worship team. She's also become an author, writing her first book, "8 Is Enough." How appropriate. :) Click below to purchase!

Superhero parents! ^^

Grateful to have been asked to capture another season in the Alford family. What a stunning testimony of God's grace and faithfulness!

Much love xo
