God always brings people together for a reason. This day, God brought me this family to capture... and it was a special special day. I got to learn so many lessons from them in the short amount of time we had together, and without saying too much, I am forever grateful for a lesson I learned this day.
The Cook family is so "together". I know that sounds a little corny... but seriously, you can just feel their connection. I think this is why I love shooting families so much. We all have busy lives, whether we work, raise our kids, travel, take our kids to their practices and games... all busy lives on different levels. The hard part of that, is that it's hard to stay connected as a unit. It's easy to let the day to day activities get in the way. The Cook family is busy in many ways, and Brian travels a lot for his career... and there is still this crazy magnetic pull between this family. It was really beautiful to watch. Victoria, thank you for connecting with me to do this shoot. Thank you also for sharing such an intimate part of your life with me. It made me go home and hug my husband and my sweet little Lilianna Victoria very tight... and taught me once again... to BE PRESENT in my life, as you are with yours.
Here are a few favorites from our shoot:)
