I took these pictures out of the envelope when they came from the printer and I smiled. A big, fat, huge, honest to goodness smile! I know that I am extremely biased because I have been lucky enough to have watched this kid grow up into an amazing adult. Then I stopped and realized that if these prints make ME this happy, how will his Mom feel when she opens them up!?!? I'm pretty sure even more happy than I was. As I was standing at the post office getting ready to send theses prints out and I just had to take one more peek at them, just one more. I started thinking about how proud I felt and how lucky I was being able to freeze a moment and give it back to someone. What an incredible thing... it's overwhelming when you think of that way. Something that is a whole lot bigger than all of us really. This kind of stopped me in my tracks as I have been questioning lately the why behind what I do. The answer was right there the whole time..just staring me in the face. I just needed it to be presented in a way that woke me up and opened my eyes. So yes, to whomever is up there...lesson learned!! Thank you. My eyes are wide open.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!
