This woman is a wonderful friend and such a beautiful example of a human being. She had talked to me about a family session for a while but nothing was ever scheduled. Then the family dynamics changed when her husband left a week before thanksgiving. She was crushed! The children hurt and angry!
She called me and wanted portraits. She had to sell her tandem bike to pay bills and wanted a picture. Something to document the moments that had shared and the fun they had with the bike. I wanted them in front of their house, the house they would eventually leave to start their new life.
She also asked for portraits of just the kids. Her oldest son was moving away to start his adult life and she felt these images were so important.
I've watched this family struggle and emotionally, it's been hard. They're moving forward!
