The past couple of weeks have been hard for me. I know we all have days/weeks like that. In the midst of times that are hard I am thankful for my best friend. Joy and I have been friends since we were teenagers. We sat together in church, sang, giggled and had too many sleepovers to count. We also had our share of fighting like siblings…which I credit to the fact that we were like sisters. It’s funny how many years later I can still talk to her for hours. I love seeing how much she loves the Lord and longs to be the wife, mommy and woman He wants her to be.
I loved this shoot. I loved that it was an escape from my hard few days. I loved the fact that Joy let me take her and her kids into a field of prickly plants. I loved the way the light danced behind Joy and Layla making everything golden. It felt peaceful! Thank you Joy for being you!
