“Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile & who love you no matter what.”
So I’ve kinda been MIA because I have been editing multiple sessions of pictures including this family session last week and it was a success! I still have a lot of editing to do with the pictures… but I could not wait to share some of the pictures and the story behind some of them.
The people in these photos have been in my life for 20+ years. The first is a picture of two beautiful women I am so grateful to call family, to call an aunt and to call a sister. The second is the shoes of a strong woman and mom and her son that doesn’t go anywhere without those boots. The third is one of my favorites of my mom and her best friend (someone I am lucky to call my aunt) these two women I look up to in so many ways and look to both of them for strength and faith. The last is my soul sister and I (God made us and our mothers friends because they couldn’t handle us as sisters, even though we’ve always been a dynamic duo); she someone I admire and would not have been able to go through so many ups and downs without her by my side.
I could say so much about all the photos I took that day, but the only thing that is important is the people in theses photos. These people may not be my true blood related family, but rather my family bonded by love and there for each other when we truly needed it. Short, but sweet post and mostly appreciating the people that have a special place in my heart!
I am so happy I was able to capture that love on camera even if I twisted my knee and have to go to the doctor for it! Don’t underestimate your photographer either.
