There is something undeniably special and important about returning 'home'. Even more precious is having the opportunity to return to your childhood home with your own growing family.
Meet the Marsman family. Four grown siblings, each with their own beautiful family, and their Mom and Dad - one of the warmest and most welcoming groups I have ever had the pleasure of photographing.
I was invited to visit as this family of 18 gathered from across the province on Thanksgiving weekend. It rained (it even hailed!), but smiles and laughter prevailed :)
My heart was full as I left that day; filled up as I witnessed such a loving (and large!) family come together; all of the moments shared and the memories created. I was honoured by the invitation to return home with them.
