it was really ironic the way the timing of our session worked out. no, it must have been divine perfection. they showed up that chilly morning with a single photograph in hand that they wanted to include in our time…a photograph of a small, scared-looking child.
you see, exactly one year ago that same photograph had appeared in their inbox and when they opened it, for the first time they saw the face of their daughter. a lot’s happened over the last year, and it all culminates in this: as deeply as i searched through the lens of my camera that day, that fearful little girl was nowhere to be found. in her place was a child full of joy and contentment, a child who now knows the love of a family.
thank you, nathan and stacie, for spending such a sweet time with me and for letting me love on your beautiful daughter. you have all been blessed!!
