Virginia Beach portrait and lifestyle photographer specializing in comfortable portraits and candids
As we packed up for year 3, putting our things in piles and running around our house turning off appliances and unplugging electronics, I checked my email one last time. I was heading to the beach with my husband and knew I wouldn’t be checking my email a ton, so I figured – one more time. There was a note from my aunt and what struck me was the last thing she said…
“I can’t wait to see you all this week to laugh, cry,
and celebrate a well-earned vacation,
share memories of our lost loved ones
and hug each other as much as we can stand.”
Coming off the week, I think we did a really good job of that. I feel so close to my family after these weeks. Like I just want to keep hugging them and telling them they mean so much to me. I know I’m blessed to have a crazy, loving, diverse group of people in my life. I thank the Lord for them and will cherish another year of photos to remind us of such a sweet time.
