It was my first session of the new year. I should have been excited, pumped, ready. Instead I spent the morning at the doctor with my youngest son who had almost bit through his bottom lip.
I was tired, cranky, not 100%. I thought about calling and asking to reschedule. But I was replaying our conversation, arranging all the details of our session. How excited she was. How her husband had the day off. How 4 was her lucky number. We were scheduled for the 4th. To commemorate her 4th child. I couldn’t break her heart. I sucked it up. And showed up.
And I’m so thankful I did. It was awesome. This family geared me up for this year. Revived something in me. Reminded me why it is that I do this. Because I love documenting families. I love capturing moments in the lives of families that pass all to quickly. I love witnessing a fathers love for his family; for his wife. I love seeing boys be boys. Sticks and dirt and running non-stop. I’d be lying if I didn’t want to go home and have a couple more babies 😉
So you guys, Thank you! Truly, I could not have started my year with anyone better.
