A few months ago I was watching the girls play in the backyard, and the most beautiful light covered them. I was mesmerized by it, and decided to run in and get my camera so I could document it forever.
By the time I found my camera, put in the battery, and headed back out, it was gone.
I looked at the clock. 7:05.
The next night snuck up on me and I was about to miss it. I looked outside and there it was. This beautiful, warm, angelic light that filled my backyard and reminded me in a difficult moment that the Lord was all around me.
I asked Ellie if she could hold Charlotte as I grabbed my camera and some beautiful heirloom dresses that my friend Hollie made (one of them is featured HERE…. She is INCREDIBLY gifted and probably incredibly sick of me telling her so…but seriously, AMAZING).
I ran outside, adjusted the settings, and started shooting.
18 minutes later it was gone.
That’s all I got.
Gone so fast.
Just 18 years.
I mean, minutes.
