I got into family photography by trying to capture my own family. A very wise photographer (Trevor Dayley) once told me that it was important to show yourself to your clients. SO I’m taking a break from posting my clients today, to post myself and the 3 men that make me…well, me 🙂
13 is our lucky number. Richard and I started dating on Friday the 13th. We closed on our first house on July 13. And we usually have awesome things happen when 13s are involved. So in January of this year, I looked at Richard and said..this is our year. Well…it was a year alright. A year of happiness and heartbreak, a year of smiles and tears, a year of excitement and disappointment. I won’t bore everyone with the details of our story again. It’s particularly sad, but everyone has a sad story. Everyone is battling something in any given year. With that being said, I would not change.a.single.second. We met a lot of amazing people, got to rediscover the beauty in some people we already knew, and we really found each other. We taught our boys very valuable lessons….everything great in this world starts with a little bit of courage. That real men cry. And that things don’t always work out the way you want them to, but they always work out the way they are supposed to.
I thank God every day for these three men…big and little. And I am also soooo very thankful for this year. It has shown me the real sweetness in the good times, the pure strength in the bad times, and that I have found the perfect partner to walk through both with. My life would suck without that cute fella. There are certain moments that become the foundation for the years to come and this year is definitely one for us. So check out our awesome clan…..I know I’m pretty biased, but they wrote the definition of family.
May God give you…
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
