Sharon

Wednesday, August 12, 2015   |   Portraits
The final day of the blogging challenge. The challenge - to highlight a customer. This one is easy! I have been so very lucky to recently meet a wonderful woman and her family and her story is one of grace, love and just plain old good Montana charm. 

Please meet the lovely Sharon and her delightful family. This is her mom who is in her 80s and a total pistol, her daughter Hope and her son Chris.

Sharon has been meaning to have family images created for a long time… and then a health scare created the moment of NOW…. and what a lovely morning we had together.

The wonderfully talented Christie came along with me and did all the girls makeup - Chris declined - who knows why?!! Then off we went to capture the relationships and joy that make up their family.

It was truly an honor to be a part of this special day.

And we had to have the photo bomber - its that younger kid brother thing - don't pretend its not there! Enjoy, embrace - celebrate life!

A few weeks later I was back to capture Sharon and her fiancé Von.

We also had to take things one step further now they have matching hair styles.

And of course I had to try a short cut look…

On a more real note. This was an amazing time for me. It reinforced everything that is behind what I do. It bought some incredible people into my life. People who I want to get to spend more time with. The session was powerful as there was an unspoken shadow in the background. These images are important for everyone in so many ways.  
 
The other thing I was so lucky - so lucky to be surrounded by people who care so much for one another. People who can face the shadows and find joy and happiness. Find the positive things in life. Find humor. Keep dignity and walk with grace. For this I am so grateful to you all for including me on the journey. Thank you, truly thank you from the bottom of my heart.
