The Cox Family 2014
We frequently visited the Cox family when I was growing up, nearly every week. Doug and Tammy are some of my parent's best friends and they have three kids as well so all six of us (my sister, brother, and I) spent a great deal of time together throughout our childhoods. Every summer, we'd camp with them at least once at Lake of the Woods, Howard Prairie, or Jedediah Smith State Park. They feel more like cousins than close friends and I've always remembered our sleepovers and camping trips fondly.
As the six of us kids grew up and slowly moved out (I was the youngest and the last to leave), we didn't keep in touch as much as we used to. Some of us moved away, others had children, we went to college, we got grown-up jobs.
The good news is, this hasn't stopped us from being close. We don't see each other that often but when we do, it's just like old times, and I realize how much I treasure those old times.
In February, one of the Cox kids had a beautiful baby girl, Cecilia, and I had the immense honor of photographing her for her newborn photos. Then, for Tammy's birthday, they bought her a family photo session from me! I was so thrilled. Some of the photos from that hot July day are below and I couldn't be happier with them.
