Time Flies – Myerowitz Family, part 2

There is a bit of history between the Joles family and the Myerowitz family. We owe these folks a great deal. I’ll get to that in a minute. I’ll start with the subject at hand: family portraits.

We first photographed the Myerowitz family during the Thanksgiving weekend in 2011. That was a wild day, full of laughter and a certain Sesame Street song, and the day’s importance was palpable. Gail knew we were capturing a small slice, a brief moment in the family’s story because life keeps rolling, building, and changing.

Seven years later and a lot has happened. Gail said it was time for family portraits again.

Thanksgiving weekend 2018 was another wonderously wild day, this time complete with “Baby Shark” and mimosas. Spanning from 15 months to 80something, the Myerowitz family can now brag about the additions of two beautiful daughters-in-law, two above average grandbabies, and a handsome Steve. And so they should.

When I asked Gail what she had in mind for this round of family photos, her answer was simple – “I want everyone together, looking at the camera, and smiling.” Well, Gail, I think we all managed to do it again, capturing your family’s sliver in time and the memories that you know are so very important.

And now I’ll take a moment to express my thanks to the Myerowitz family. The chiropractors and acupuncturists and Traditional Chinese Medicine Myerowitzes? Yes, those Myerowitzes, and particularly Gail and Zev.

As some friends of Joles Photography know, we have faced health issues over the years, and Chris is currently fighting through the effects of Lyme Disease. We sincerely credit Zev and Gail with both our health and our sanity. Their friendship and professionalism has sustained us, a rock in the storm, so to speak. They have answered crazy questions, offered advice, shared hard-earned wisdom, and all the while kept our spirits up. The fact that photography is even once again possible is due largely to this couple. So when I say that I am thankful and happy to have been part of this family portrait adventure once again, I mean it.

By the way, I already have you booked for Thanksgiving 2025.
