Kitchener Family Session – Ashley

There are some times in life you are completely surprised with the beauty and kindness of the people you work with. Ashley contacted me to come do some family photos of her and her son, and after her gallery was sent off she sent me the kindest message. I’m not going to lie, it made me cry.

“Oh my LORD, Ashley. These are gorgeous! Can’t lie – I started going through them as soon as I got off shift yesterday, while sitting in my truck, and the song “Boy” by Lee Brice came on the radio (I’m a country music gal) and I totally ugly cried all over my truck.

I can’t put into works how much these photos mean – as a single parent, you end up with a particular kind of bond with your kid, since you’re a two-man team most of the time… But since you’re a two man team, there’s never anyone else to take pictures. Thank you for being our third-man that day :)”

This is exactly why I love my job. Photos aren’t just a capture of a moment. They are what we hold onto in times of joy, heartache and strife.

They are life in itself, and I cannot imagine a world without them.
