Oh this family! I have known them for over half my life. Sandra and her family have always made me a part of their family and I will love them forever because of it. I have had so many wonderful and incredible times because of them and I was so honoured when they asked me to do their family photos.
Sandra is the reason I started this photography gig. I received a camera for Christmas and she asked if I would be interested in taking a few photos of her newest baby. I will remember that day for the rest of my life. It was the moment this all became so clear. It was the funnest afternoon and I remember thinking to myself do you think anyone would actually pay me to do this because this doesn’t feel like work. It was the ah-ha my life had been waiting for and I will forever be grateful that she even thought to ask me that day. Now I don’t know if anyone will actually see those photos because boy, I really didn’t know what I was doing, but they will forever hold a special place in my heart.
Two years later here I am with a company, a website, clients, and an amazing creative outlet all because she took a chance on me. Her support throughout the years has been my guiding light. Without all of our nights talking and drinking tea on her couch I know I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thank you Sand, for being my biggest cheerleader, my confidant, and the best friend a girl could ask for.
You and your women, four generations of strong women, will always be my muse.
