Our Cotton Field mini-sessions are so quick and we do so many families each day that it is hard to connect with each one in such a short time. Last night, however, we had a session that left me in tears remembering exactly why it is that I do what I do.
Meet Jessica and Garth. Tomorrow would have been their daughter Mackenzie’s 2nd birthday. Two years ago on Tuesday would have been the happiest day of their lives but life didn’t quite work out that way, and Mackenzie was unable to come home with them. I can’t imagine the pain of trying to rebuild your life after such a traumatic and untimely loss.
Family is so precious and life is fleeting, as we were reminded talking with Jessica and Garth last night. Hug your loved ones, get busy make memories, and don’t forget to take photos and print them.
Mackenzie, we know you’re loved so much even if you’re not here to celebrate your birthday with your beautiful Mom and Dad. Happy 2nd Birthday, precious girl.
