I met the “Z” family around 3 1/2 years ago at their first session. I was amazed at how caring and sweet this family was and I was more then happy when this mom contacted me again to set up another session.
Not only is the couple completely awesome, I learned this evening that this year they celebrated 12 years of marriage and 20 years of being a couple! The extreme challenges that the have endured is more then most people even slightly imagine and instead of turning into bitter people because of what God has handed them, they have become a stronger family. I came across a quote that made me think of them tonight, “Couples that learn how to persevere through the tough times are the ones that emerge with even stronger relationships.” This is so them!
Even though we hadn’t seen each other for 3 1/2 years, I felt our conversations were as of friends instead of photographer/client. Most sessions are around 45 minutes but with the heartfelt conversations and many hugs, it lasted much longer (luckily her sweet daughter and husband were so patient).
This session tonight was not only a fun session but it was so incredibly therapeutic for me and I sincerely thank her for that!
I can’t wait to see you again “Z” family!!
