Joy

If I were to choose one word to describe today, it's joy.

There's nothing more moving, more wonderful than seeing a mother and her children express their love for each other. While there are many ways this affection manifests itself, today, at our studio love was seen in an early morning wake-up so mom could have beautiful portraits, in the patience of two daughters waiting while mom was pampered with hair and makeup, as mom proudly watched her daughters try on gown after beautiful gown growing up before her eyes and in the shared laughter and enjoyment of a special Girl's Day spent together.

The moments we spend with our loved ones are treasures; invaluable treasures. If you have the chance, tell your family you love them; enjoy them; relish in their company.  Soak up the joy that Family can be - in thick or thin.

Here's a sneak peek of today's session. (I cannot wait to share more later!!)

A special thank you to Justina Ford for her makeup and hair styling (www.makeupbyjford.com) and to my lovely assistant Cameryn!
