Pam Spaulding Book

Some people often joke that they could write a book about their lives, but the story of one Louisville family has been chronicled in a very unique way - not with words but with pictures. Now those pictures have been published for all to see.

For Courier-Journal photographer Pam Spaulding, a simple assignment in 1977 evolved into a career-length preoccupation, friendship and ultimately a National Geographic book. "An American Family, Three Decades with the McGarveys" shares more than 30 years of Pam’s pictures of the McGarvey family whom Pam met when she was asked to follow a year in the life of first-time parents.

"Louisville Life" meets the McGarveys and the woman who’s had them in her photographic sights for so long.
