It’s for bittersweet reasons I had the opportunity to photograph this family. This family is moving. For this I am sad. I am sad because my youngest walks around the house yelling Lulu, my son is full of excitement after an adventure with Finley, and my oldest recalls the giggles shared between her, Emerson, and Harper. I am sad because we exchange babysitting. I am sad because Lydsay gets me. I am sad because this family has become every so dear to my family. So all of that is the bitter in the bittersweet. The sweet is watching them having a calling on their life and not being afraid to act on it. The sweet is knowing another family doing the hard work of ministry, walking that same journey even if it has to be so far away. The sweet is knowing lifelong friendships have been formed and for this I am so grateful. The sweet is also having the chance to capture their family before we part ways. I love them dearly and so glad to call them friends.
