A year ago, our family came together during a sad and difficult time. Brian’s dad had been very sick with cancer and we knew a photo of his grandchildren would bring a smile to his face. Our session occurred last minute and honestly, had been hard for everyone. We had come together for a specific reason and I am so thankful we did. Grandpa Mike would receive that photograph, see HERE, days before his passing. That framed image remained directly in his eyesight, until his last moments.
Brian would lose both of his parents to cancer in 2016. These tragedies continue to remind us just how precious every day and every moment is. Spend time with those you truly care about. Capture the moments and don’t take them for granted.
Shooting Austin Family Photography, I am blessed to be able to capture so many other families moments. I am able to freeze those in time and I am so thankful for this.
I read a powerful letter from a young lady diagnosed with cancer recently. She wrote the letter to her family just before passing. She reminds us life is too short and to live for every moment. Read her touching letter HERE.
When I reached out to my sister in law and mentioned wanting to do this session, I thought of the perfect place, the perfect color scheme, and even perfect pose. Sometimes during an Austin Family Photography session, the shoot doesn’t end up quite how you think it will go. Thankfully it ends up perfectly how it should. This session was so perfectly imperfect. I could not help but sit back and laugh. The location is gorgeous and all the kids look amazing. Trying to get four little ones to stand still to get one pose I REALLY wanted, well that proved much harder. This session would show sometimes, the outtakes are the best images. THIS image pretty much sums it all up.
