We recently had a family photo session with the lovely Jen Downer of She Saw Things.  I’m so grateful we had this opportunity, and I think she captured our togetherness beautifully. What a warm, generous heart she has, and I just love how she sees things. When I saw these photos for the first time, I immediately thought of the afterglow effect. As gorgeous as these photos are, I consciously worked (so hard!) to appreciate these pictures with all my heart NOW vs years from now when I look back. I celebrated the imperfections I saw -you know the ones – the ones we inevitably see when we see photos of ourselves. But just the awareness of the afterglow effect dropped me deeper into the now of these photos, to a place where I feel so in love with my life, with my family. I cannot wait to have these printed and framed all over the house. Thank you Jen, for the precious gift of seeing our family and for capturing our joy. I am grateful, grateful, grateful.
