The Hagewoods are dear friends of mine. I first meet Hunter and Lori shortly after they were married and moved to Knoxville. Hunter had come to UT to get his MS degree in Computer Science. Their son Mathias was born during the time they lived at the Christian Student Center. It wasn’t long before they moved to Brazil to join Lori’s brothers doing mission work in João Pessoa.
If you know me pretty well, you know that I’ve been to Brazil several times over the past 6 years. The majority of that time has been spent in João Pessoa. The Hagewoods have always been welcoming and letting me stay with them. They had come up for a month or so to spend some time visiting friends and family. A couple of those weeks were going to be spent in Knoxville. So when Lori asked if I could do some family photos and some photos of the kids, I was more than willing to try to fit them into a pretty hectic schedule at the time.
