This sweet families pictures have been in my drafts folder for over 3 months. I really don't have the words to express how touching this session was. I think like most of us they had rushed through life and before they realized it they had 5 kids and hadn't taken family pictures for yrs. Then some medical issues came up and I think it caused them to stop and re-evaluate what was important.
We shot this one for him, kinda like his last ride.
I sat in car after this session and cried a bit, thought about what and how I would change things if I were in the same situation. Of course I would want to spend more time with my kids, of course I would want to work less, check some things off my bucket list, travel with my husband, BUT most importantly, my first thought was I would take more pictures with me in them. I would quit worrying about being photographed looking fat. We did a family session 2 weeks later, I didn't worry too much about outfits, or if my kids smiled perfectly and I just lived in the moment. Because in the end that is all I will leave them and I want every memory possible to be a good one.
It was good have a session that really put things into perspective and I hope it does for you to.
