There is no higher honor for me than to be invited back to continue documenting a family’s growth and story. When this sweet family decided to return to Galveston for vacation (check out a little peek of their 2014 session here), they wanted to update their family portraits with the addition of a new baby, and I was all too happy to oblige.
Despite the joys of vacation, it’s been a rough 12 months. Mom’s father passed away unexpectedly a few months ago, and she wanted to think of a way to honor his memory and legacy during their session. We settled on flying prayer papers, on which each family member wrote their prayers and remembrances. The idea was then to alight and release them, but the coastal winds made that part difficult. Despite the wind, it was a poignant and beautiful moment, with hugs and prayers and tears and laughs. I’m so glad Mom thought to include this special time in her family’s session.
