It’s family that makes a house a home. And it’s family that really shows you just how powerful a legacy of love can be.
Seeing two sets of proud grandparents cooing and smiling at their sweet grandson. To see two parents snuggle close and just light up each time their son cracked a smile. And to see Ashlee and Jake embrace each other and giggle the entire evening brings one of my “reasons why” sharply into focus.
Because no matter what life has in store for him, Aeson will always have these moments, and these photos to look back on. And he will never have to question just how loved he really is. It might not matter how many museums they take him to, or what toys he does or does not get for the holidays, but rather that he grows up knowing that he is so loved, that he is part of a love story and that he too has his own love story out there waiting for him. That is what will help him to be ready for anything. That is what will teach him just how much other amazing and loving people can enrich his life.
And that’s why I love my job. From the second I met Ashlee and Jake I just knew that it was going to be a fun night! Their up for anything attitude and the adorable way their little family looks when snuggled close made me infinitely more excited for their August wedding! To both of you, and your whole family who helped make this session an amazing success – thank you! I’m so thankful for couples like you who live each and every day with absolute love at the center of your lives. You truly make the world a much better place!
