Sometimes people enter your life and you immediately have a connection with them. That’s how it was for Brooke and I. This family is beautiful and strong in so many ways and it was an honor to photograph them. The two of us chatted quite a bit before our session and the morning of our session I got this message from Brooke and I just knew it was going to be an amazing shoot!
“I have to tell u something amazing!!
You know we haven’t had any family pics taken since Maddie passed…
I’ve been having a hard time with it cuz I didn’t want a family pic without her….
Last week I tried to find a place where I could order a monarch butterfly..(butterflies = Maddie in my eyes)
No luck! To expensive and can’t order just a couple. Yesterday I even mentioned wanting butterflies while talking to my boss.Today….Morgan came into the bathroom with a MONARCH BUTTERFLY on her finger. She picked it up outside , it was following her!!!We are bringing it tonight!”
You guys….the butterfly did not move…it did not fly away…it stayed right by the girls! It was perfect!
I had an an amazingly fun time with these guys and could have photographed them all night. Thank you Hicks Family for letting me catch a glimpse of your beautiful family!
