Happy New Year Friends!
What a year 2018 has been. I started my own business in January and have so enjoyed getting to know all of my clients and capturing memories for them that will last a lifetime. To start out 2019, I wanted to share my favorite session from 2018 with you.
My parents asked me to do a session for them back in October and I could not have been more excited to shoot this. They are a couple that has stood the test of time through 35 years of marriage. It has not been an easy journey for them and at times it has been very difficult, but God has sustained them by His grace. Whenever I think about what they have walked through in their marriage that I have been blessed to witness both through the eyes of a child and now as an adult, the words of Ecclesiastes 3 always come to mind:
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace."
These words sum up all of life. What a gift it is to experience it with someone by your side through it all. I hope that as you look at these pictures, you will see a story of redemption, faith, hope and love.
