It sounds so cliche to say this but my husbands family and the Thaxton family go way back! My father-in-law has known this amazing family since he was a teenager. When I started dating my husband, 11 years ago, we would babysit Joel, his older brother, and his younger sister. I was delighted and so honored when they asked me to take Joel's senior photos! I will confess though, I still pictured Joel as the 6 year old energetic little lad I met 11 years ago, not a grown young man about to spread his wings and take on the world. I had such a great time capturing Joel's enthusiastic personality, and I can't wait to see what life has in store for this young man.
