One of the greatest privileges I have had through my career has been the families that I have been made a part of through friendship. This family has been one of those. They have also forever impacted my life.
Over the years, I have seen many memes shared about why professional photography is so important. There are memes, and then there is real life. I will never forget the day. Not long after I did their family pictures, they tragically lost one of their family members. I was so thankful to have been able to capture memories of this family while they could all be together one last time. It has been a reminder of why I am really doing what I am doing.
