Sometimes you just have to embrace the season you are in. This family has truly walked through that this year. There have been some amazingly high moments with the addition of a son-in-law and some pretty scary moments with a diagnosis no one wants to hear. Yet, they have walked there battle out in the most beautiful way…clinging to each other, loving unconditionally, and fighting with everything they have.
Preparing for this session, I was so excited to be able to capture them during this time…a season where families gather together to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. They decided on Tryon International Equestrian Center as the spot because of its beauty and variety, but we neglected to plan around the weather. The cold and wind were incredible. Seriously…gusting wind…seriously! My ears were aching after being out in it! But, you know what…they were just thankful to be able to do these! We worked fast, embraced the hair flying ALL over the place and just went for it!
I am so glad we did…as I went back through these pictures…I can see how this family has grown since the last time they were in front of my camera…I honestly can not wait until the next time!
