19 months later

This post is 19 months in the making. I kept this special session close to my heart for awhile then I couldn’t figure out how to upload the very important and heart warming video you will see below. BUT better late than never I always say.

As a photographer there are many sessions that are special to you for different reasons. This session will forever hold a very special place in my heart. For this session I had the honor of photographing one of the most amazing moments in a family’s history. Here’s the backstory…Heather and Mark have been clients of mine for over 4 years. Heather first contacted me when they were pregnant with their first daughter Lottie and we began working together and quickly became friends. Heather is one of the most amazing people I have ever met, genuine, loving, and thoughtful are some of the first words that come to mind.  Even though they had moved out of state for Mark’s job they scheduled a family session with me for October of 2016 when they would be back in Wisconsin visiting family. Heather texted me the morning of the session and asked if I had a chalk board I could bring because she “had an idea.”

When I arrived at the session she told her husband she had seen a cute photo where the couple stood back to back and wrote on the chalkboard what they loved about each other and then turned around and showed the other person while the photographer captured their reaction…well little did Mark know what he was about to read would change their lives.

After taking these photos I decided to flip my camera onto video mode and was able to capture some of this wonderful moment live.

I am still so humbled by the fact that I was able to be a part of this very special moment and that I was trusted to capture it for them.

I hope this brighten your day and brings a smile to your face!
