"Even though it's hard, we're lucky that we have people to miss" I reassured her. I can only image how heart-wrenching it must be to have one of your daughters (and your grand babies!) move across the country. However, my mom knows exactly how it feels - and she reminds me that we're lucky to love each other so much that we miss each other so badly.
Needless to say, this session pulled on my heart strings quite a bit. It holds a special place in my heart. It was special for many reasons - it was generational, it was on the farm that's been in the family for years and years, near the house they built and raised their children in, where their grandchildren have played, where the horse they've had since a foal has roamed.
I hope this family treasures these images - and what an AMAZING gift Ashley has given to her extended family. The gift of capturing memories and freezing in time their family as it is right here, right now.
