Joy of Childhood. Surber Family. Empire, Michigan.

Every year I have been amazingly lucky to capture this gregarious and kind family on the shores of Lake MIchigan in Empire. Every year, I leave these sessions secretly (not so secret now!) wishing I were part of this group--they are so much fun with so much energy and joy and clear love for each other. Here are some of the shots of the kids that really drew me in this year.
