This photo is of my husband Michael and my son Elijah.
I love this image….it sits on top of Elijah’s bookshelf so we all get to see it everyday.
Now I don’t think other people could come close to liking this image as much as I do. It holds a special place in my heart because the people framed within are so precious to me. I takes me back to when Eli was so small you could scoop him up into your arms and enfold him with ease….. and it reminds me of the mighty adventure it was raising our first child together, bringing us forever closer.
I think this image also reminds me that even when I am not perfectly satisfied with my work or feeling overwhelmed with the creative genious of others in my field… that sometimes an image doesn’t have to be an award-winner…it just needs to capture something precious for the one who will be looking at it everyday.
