into the woods * gainesville, florida family photographer * mikifoto

it is true when they say gainesville is a special community. there are so many extraordinary families right here in town. and i have been so lucky to have many of them step in front of my camera. the ginder family, lelia, rick, leigh and dale, is an excellent example. they are kind and generous. strong and brave. loving and affectionate. they continue to educate us about duchenne disease and raise money to fight it.  and when i see them through my lens, i feel their powerful connection.  a parent's love.  a brother's love.  a family's love. we had our session on their new property which was wild and woodsy.  thickets of trees and bushes and huge spider webs.  soon to be the site of their newly built home.  and under the canopy of trees, their smiles brightened the forest.

here is a sneak peak of their family session...
