I don’t know where to start this blog post. Half of me wants to simply post the images and let them speak for themselves. The other half feels the need to share just a little bit about this amazing family, to give some perspective to everyone who has not met them. So, before going any further, watch this 5 minute video that was created by the amazing photographers from We Are the Parsons

Throughout the photoshoot with the Ruetschle’s, I could not help but smile. Michelle and Steve spoke to their boys in a tone that was saturated with love. They held one another with a tenderness that whispered “I love you” and when they laughed it was nothing short of pure joy.

I will squeeze my boys tighter tonight, and every night until they start pushing me away, and I will thank God for his grace and blessings each day. Now, go hug someone you love!
