“I couldn’t get my family to eat together.
You have your family dreaming together.”
- Bruce Dern (The Astronaut Farmer)
Roger. Nikkia. Xavier. Isaiah. The Stokes.
This family is just plain cool. Seriously… Mati and I were able to spend the afternoon with them and we walked away truly inspired. Inspired as artists but also as our own family unit. You can just feel how much the Stokes love each other and the level of respect they hold for one another. They encourage each other to dream big and will be there if they fall. And yes… we got this from one afternoon.
My prayer is that these images live up to the standard for which they have set because they truly deserve it. When Mati and I grow up… we want to be just like the Stokes.
