Multi-generation Session - In memory of Maw-Maw (1930-2020)

May 24, 2020  •  1 Comment

This is a very special post because the subject honored in these photos has since gone home to be with her Savior. Betty Barger (Maw-Maw to her family) passed away one month after this session. We had no idea that time remaining was quite so short, but God knew the gift these images would be to her loved ones for years to come. 

From the moment I entered Ms. Betty's home, I felt the love present. Despite the discomfort she must have been feeling, she welcomed me with her warm, sweet smile. We headed out to the intimate setting of her back yard and all I did was stand back and click the shutter as the beauty of Maw-Maw's relationship with each member of her family was on full display.

I had the privilege of attending Ms. Betty's funeral and listened as her children and grandchildren rose up and called her blessed, describing her as a woman who loved God and others deeply and knew how to have fun. She was fiercely competitive and enjoyed a good joke, providing constant entertainment for those around her. Every memory spoken confirmed what I had already witnessed in these pictures. This woman was filled with joy, laughter and wisdom that overflowed, leaving a legacy that will not be forgotten and Lord willing, will continue for generations and generations to come.

I worked with Betty for 20 plus years and treasured every moment I had with her. Some days I still want to pick up the phone and call her and then stop and Realize she is not here and then-the hurt spills over me Anew. I also had the honor to have known Mr Frank!! He was as lovely a person as Ms Betty. A beautiful beautiful couple who loved God and lived their lives for Him!! My life was so much better knowing these two wonderful people!! I rejoice in the fact that I know that they have been reunited with all their families and Each other and are in God’s presents!! I loved and will always miss her!! The photos were wonderful a caught the beautiful loving Betty!!
