That's what happened with this sweet family.
I've known this beautiful Mama for some time now, I even took her high school senior picture almost 7 years ago! Since then she has moved to Texas and started a family of her own. She's been through some pretty rough times, but I watched from afar as she weathered it all with grace and strength. She's a wonderful encourager - always the first to like a picture I post, and she's a budding photographer herself! But when she contacted about wanting to have family pictures taken while they were visiting in PA I was surprised! Surely there are amazing photographers in TX that would be easier for them to use! But nope, while they were here in Pennsylvania for 2 short weeks they wanted ME to capture this time in their lives... you guys, I can't tell you how honored I was (and still am!) by this. So we made it happen! I did a quick turn around and we had a fun Reveal with extended family there and it was just all complete perfection. I was a little nervous shipping their products to Texas as I'm used to hand delivering, but everything worked out just right and I couldn't be happier.
To be completely honest, there are times that I wonder why I'm doing this. You guys, running a business is HARD. But these are the reminders I need to keep pushing. Because someone may just value your work enough to come half way across the country for it. And that's pretty incredible.
