To say I'm a big fan of this family would be a mild understatement. The Goerdts mean everything to me.
Paula is my Godmother and #1 fan (outside of my immediate family, of course, 'cause they love me a lot, right guys? :P) She and Tim have been my biggest supporters for as long as I can remember! They're the ones who hugged me and let me shed tears and lay it all out there when I had my heart broken for the first time (when I was too cool to hear from my parents the same things they were saying :)). They continue to provide great perspectives, encouraging words and prayers through the challenges of marriage, parenthood and living away from "home."
Just as importantly, they've been there to celebrate with me and cheer me on when I met and married my hubby, we had our babies, I launched my business, and everything joyful in-between! They're always doing things--big and small--to let me know they're there.
Paula is the first person to like and comment on every photo I post on my L. Photography page--simple but meaningful reminders that she's my fan. She refers people to me and had me do Kyle's senior photos, which probably calls for a little throwback here...
So, it was a great honor and pleasure to do this photo session for them, especially during a time when they've hit a little bump in the road. They're a good reminder that, through it all, LIFE AND LAUGHTER ARE BEAUTIFUL, especially when you have great fans by your side.
I'm so glad I was able to capture you guys to remember THIS time in your lives...before there are brides, and grandbabies, and healthier days. I enjoyed your family photo session in the Millwork District! Thanks for the photo fun in Dubuque! Please remember you are loved and appreciated. Keep smiling, laughing, and being EXACTLY who you are! You are a great family. Thanks to each of you for being you!
<3 Your fan (who may or may not have cried while writing this),
