Shane and Jamie were born and raised in Joplin, MO. They met in 1995 while working a part-time job at a music & video store, and Shane knew immediately that he had met the girl he would marry (it took some time to convince Jamie). 

To Shane’s everlasting joy, Jamie eventually agreed to marry him, and God blessed their union on May 16, 1998. They have continued to receive God’s blessings with the births of their children.  Adeline is a junior, participates in band and is a part of Campus CREW at Cross Church Fayetteville. Logan is in 8th grade, is also in band and loves video games. Halle is in 6th grade, loves school and serving in the preschool ministry at church.  Palmer Jane is in 3rd grade, she loves gymnastics and also serves in the preschool ministry.   Much to everyone's surprise, the Lord blessed Shane and Jamie with the birth of Josie Kate in 2014. Josie Kate is a sweet and final addition to the family.  As you can imagine, life in the Boyd house is seldom dull and never quiet! 

Through it all, there has been one constant in their family, and in their marriage: their love for Jesus Christ and his church. Shane says, “Our mission field as parents is right here in our home, and our mission is to teach our children to love Jesus, to love others and to go anywhere in the world to tell people The Good News.”

Here are a few highlights from their summer session. We hope you enjoy viewing them as much as we enjoyed creating these beautiful images of this awesome family!
