One of the most surprising and sobering parts of my job has been how many times I’ve had the (horrible) privilege of taking the last photo or the last professional photo of a grandparent. Recently this has happened twice. One loss was expected, one was a total shock. I cannot tell you how much that makes me do a huge gut check on my life, my job, and my work. But despite the yuckiness of it all, every time it brings me to a place of peace knowing that I am in the right profession. I love the thrill and joy of documenting the beauty and intimacy of weddings. I also enjoy knowing that these images will carry a family legacy. Today I love knowing that I was able to take beautiful photos of well-loved and respected women when they were happy and surrounded by their loved ones. And more than ANYTHING, I love knowing that those women are now pain-free and in the presence of their sweet Savior. They’re gone from us. But they’re home.
My prayers and thoughts are with the Fawley and Henry families. Thank you so much for the privilege of documenting your weddings and all of the both joyful and sobering moments that come from that. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.“
