Everyone has that place they call home. The place where they feel as if they can escape reality, relax, and find pure joy and happiness. For the Offerle family, Lake James is that place. I have experienced first hand just how beautiful Lake James truly is, and personally can say it is also one of my favorite places on earth. Before the summer comes to an end, I decided to document this sweet family in their natural element. I met this amazing family three years ago, and ever since Kristi, Chris and their kids have treated me like one of their own. Truthfully, they are some of the best people I know and I'm so grateful for their unconditional support and love. I'm so happy I could capture these memories for them. My hope is that these photos make you smile, and you can feel just a glimpse of the love that this family embodies.
