The Cox Family

I’ve known mom for a few years.  We worked on a preschool fundraiser together two years in a row and we always talked about taking her family pictures.  When she contacted me about scheduling a date I was thrilled!  Mom is one of the happiest people I know (and you can tell her daughter is too).  I’ve never seen her without a beautiful, contagious smile on her face.  When she updated me on what was going on in her life my heart sank.  She has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer.  She needs our prayers.  You can read more about her story here.  Mom is a fighter and has the most positive outlook on her fight – she will beat this!  She is such an inspiration!  Not a day has gone by that I don’t think about this family and pray for this family…I hope you will join me in covering this family in our prayers!

I want one of every single picture. I am crying—-most beautiful family ever. I’m so, so, so happy you went!

Laura Lawless - February 23, 2011 - 12:10 pm

Okay, well maybe Erin could comb your hair in the one of the backs of your heads, but otherwise, I want them all!

Those are some awesome pictures. Jen is a gem of a person. She is one of the most positive persons I know. You did a great job of capturing her beautiful smile.

The photos capture their smiles beautifully!!! It is awesome to look at these and see their happiness to be together when we are so far away and can’t physically be there with them. Their smiles make me smile. Fantastic job!!!!

Wow – the pictures are so beautiful and life-like, it brought tears to my eyes.
They’re all absolutely fantastic – oh, and so are the pictures. ;-)

Great photos! I really love the first one, with Jen, David and Sydney all together! OK, I also really love the one of just Jen and Syd too.

Great job Erin!

What a treasure! The pictures are wonderful…the photography excellent…but it is the smiles and the love that so clearly shows through that is my favorite part! To have these photos so beautifully capture those feelings…I think I love everyone of them!

Jen, this is funny but, just so you know, I had typed my message of “love, love, love” before I read your message. SO……I actually wasn’t being a copy cat but just stating my thoughts ;-)

Laura Lawless - February 23, 2011 - 6:55 pm

Faye, I love you! You can copy me anytime, but maybe you weren’t looking for the Bob the Builder look. I’m definitely sold on Erin Carlyle though. I’m gonna book my setting ASAP!

Jane Kay Orton - February 23, 2011 - 7:52 pm

Your work is beautiful–so real and so truly special. I would say that no matter what, but on top of that your subjects are so dear to my heart.

Marianne - February 23, 2011 - 8:00 pm

Great pictures! Jen you look great in purple and forgot to tell you today that your buzz cut looks super cute on you! Great job Erin capturing the love in this family!

Laura Heimann - February 23, 2011 - 9:26 pm

What an absolutely GORGEOUS family!! Pictures are beautiful!

Michele L. - February 23, 2011 - 9:44 pm

Erin, Thank you for taking such beautiful, precious photos of Jen and her family. I have known her and David since our “Disney days” and she has never looked better! I know Jen and her family will treasure these as they continue the fight of her life.

Laura Carpenter - February 23, 2011 - 9:46 pm

These photos are amazing! There is nothing I can say about them that someone else has not already said. What a beautiful family.
Love you Jen!

Keri Clarbull - February 23, 2011 - 9:55 pm

Gorgeous. Brathtaking. I am just in awe over the beauty and love these pictures illustrate. They are just so PERFECT. Syd is a gorgeous happy girl. Your family glows.

Love and hugs to you,

Keri, Paul and Natalie


Jeremy Riley - February 23, 2011 - 10:45 pm

The pictures are awesome. Mostly because they are pictures of my beautiful and inspirational sister, caring and loving brother-in-law and especially my precious niece. I can’t wait to buy a few.
Thank you Erin.

Erin - February 24, 2011 - 10:28 am

Thank you all for your very sweet comments about this amazing family! I’m not surprised at all to see how much they are loved!

Stephanie Frankenbach - February 24, 2011 - 10:42 am

WOW!! Absolutely Beautiful!!! These pictures truly capture the love and happiness they share with one another!! I wish I lived in Houston so I could have my family pics taken by Erin! (maybe she can make a trip to KC? ha) I love you Jen!

Lori Barlow - February 24, 2011 - 3:07 pm

These are beautiful pictures! What a beautiful family. My husband and I along with our church are praying for Jennifer and her family! We know God is the great healer and if it be His will Jennifer will be cancer free!

Kimmy Tadrus - February 24, 2011 - 6:28 pm

You captured their family perfectly! Their smiles are indeed contagious. :)
