Like branches on a tree we grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one. Each of our lives will always be a special part of the other…

When Bethany and I began Lamar Studios in 1993, our mission was to take beautiful pictures and create lasting family remembrances.  We’ve accomplished what we set out to do and have taken thousands of heirlooms-quality portraits.  Yet, at the time, never could we have imagined what ultimately has been our greatest reward:  The privilege and honor we feel from  families who have trusted us over and over again with their family’s portraits.  It has been such a joy to see children and families grow through the years, and we are deeply grateful when families call on us time and again for their fine portraiture.

The Hagens are one such family.  We photographed them when the kids were younger, and they returned for their daughter’s senior portraits.  Recently, we welcomed the Hagens back again to our Gilbert studio for another family photography session.  We captured these pictures in the park-like setting of our outdoor studio and utilized one of our many sets in the shot of the siblings.

Thank you to the Hagen Family and all the families who continue to trust Lamar Studios with their portraiture.
