6 months ago, I changed up my business in an effort to be able to fully invest in my clients and their sessions the way I longed to. This session really confirmed that it was the right move for me. Last month I drove down to South Carolina to photograph the Owen's family. I was able to visit and casually shoot throughout the afternoon and was able to sit down to a simple, delicious grilled dinner with them afterwards as we chatted about motherhood, loss, working from home and the beauty in it all.
This family has endured more loss than I feel my heart could take, but yet they choose gratefulness and they choose to envelope their son Page in love as they keep putting one foot in front of the other.
Page has a big sister, Martha, who passed away at just a few months old. This house was scattered with pictures of her joyful, gummy smile and her deep, wise eyes. Martha is often remembered with pinwheels and purple which we incorporated into some of the family pictures.
These images stir up something inside of me...a deep longing to treasure up all the moments as this family does.
