Meet the Schatzlein family. Liz and her husband Mike got in touch with me back in March to see if I could come to the Grove Park in July for their family reunion. “Of course,” I said. And so I did. When I got there, I immediately noticed a large family coordinated really well – and naturally, that was them. Liz and Mike are from Nashville, but their kids Tricia, Derek and Michael are scattered around the US with their families. I’m so glad they got together here in Asheville and gave me the honor of being their photographer!
I really have to hand it to them. I can’t believe how patient they were with me! I might have worked with my cousins – a family of 10 – for years, but I still mess their names up. So naturally, for the first while, I completely messed up everyone’s names. But they rolled with it, corrected me with a grin, and put me right at ease.
Liz and Mike, thanks so much for giving me the honor of being y’all’s photographer! Thanks for smiling off my name mistakes and amplifying my directions. 😀 It was a pleasure working with your family and I hope y’all love the pictures as much as I do.
