"Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of." -Bethany Hamilton
These two are truly a beam of light in a dark world. I met this family of 3 last year when we did E's 1st year photos. Her kind, sweet husband carried a bench, a toy car and lots of other cute and heavy props down to our spot. This session was JUST to document E so we did not take photos of her parents. Almost a year later I get a call from Mom asking for a session for E's 2nd Birthday. I was SO excited to see this family of 3 again....only I learned they were a family of 2. Their rock, E's hero had passed away. I immediately went back to see if I had even 1 photo of him that I could give her!
Fast Forward to our session and I was a little apprehensive because I knew how sad AND happy this session was going to be for them. I wanted to be sure we captured mom this time and she was all in! They came with the cutest props AGAIN. They brought their very best smiles and so much joy! We've since become Facebook friends and the little glimpses I get into their life are teaching me a powerful lesson. That its possible to find happiness after loss. I'm sure there is never an easy day, but these two and their story and their way of continuing to push forward is just inspiring.
Love you guys!
