If you have been following me very long at all, you recognize this family as one of my most loyal families. I have been documenting them since Max was just a year old and the Luedtke family were new to Las Vegas. I get emotional each year just seeing how much they have grown together as a family, individually, and how God has seen them through another year healthy and happy.

They have had their share of health struggles with Jon’s fight with Pancreatic cancer and their awareness that things can change at any time. The way they live their life is truly a testament to their faith and their love for each other. I am probably going to have to follow them around for the rest of their lives because I can’t imagine not documenting them each year!

Each year we try to come up with a new location for them, and we realized we had never shot at the Valley of Fire with them! It is one of my favorite locations. It is a bit of a drive outside the city, but is so worth it!

It is so hard to choose my favorites to share here!

I just loved Jess’ outfit choices this year (well, she actually nails it every year)!
