No dress rehearsal, this is our life

On Thanksgiving, I got to see Kim and the family for some fall family photos. And there was so much to be thankful for – the beautiful weather, the forest bathed in morning light, and all the crisp, colourful leaves. This amazing family and their new puppy Teddy. More importantly, thankful for Kim – truly an amazing person and a great friend. Also someone who fought and kicked cancer’s butt last year. I was in awe of her strength and perserverance throughout her battle and to this day, she is a true inspiration to me and so many others. This session would be their first since cancer entered their lives and it felt like a new start with the return of Kim’s blonde curls and new family member Teddy the golden doodle. It was clear to see that Teddy has brought much joy to the family, especially Maddy, Grace and Julia. And there was no doubt that Teddy especially loved his mama Kim and the feeling was mutual. It was so great to see everyone smiling, laughing, enjoying life. Thank you for letting me capture these images.

Kim, you are my hero. xo.

May, your beautiful words are really touching. I love so many things about these photos – especially the smiling faces of our girls and the fun that Teddy brings to our family. You’ve taken many photos of us over the years, but somehow these feel the most meaningful. You really captured some joyful moments and that is not a feeling I take for granted. I really will treasure these always and you’re right when you say it feels like a fresh start. Thank you Thank You Thank You! ?
