Tragic circumstances brought this family to a moment in time where they chose to capture the here and now at this heartwarming Petitcodiac family session.
In the quest for the perfect location to bring our vision for the Power family session in Petitcodiac to life, we ventured into the heart of this family’s own backyard, yielding truly remarkable results!
Our journey with the Power family began when Lizz reached out to us during late summer. At that time, our newest addition to the family, baby Lindsey, was just shy of two weeks old. Their story shows both their resilience and heartache. In March, Lizz’s father was diagnosed with cancer. He courageously fought the battle. There was a moment of hope when they received news of his remission. He was denied a bone marrow transplant that would have meant the world to him. This dashed any hope that the family had.
Faced with this challenging reality, Lizz and her family made a poignant decision. They decided to capture precious memories during a period of relative tranquility and “normalcy” in their lives. Initially, there were natural concerns that these photographs might stir sadness. The result: every participant in the session was overwhelmed with joy at the beautiful outcome. There were no regrets, only cherished moments that will forever hold a special place in their hearts.
Lizz, a skilled makeup artist with a deep understanding of color theory. She also drew inspiration from our comprehensive style guide. That combined knowledge played a crucial role in ensuring that every aspect of the session was thoughtfully coordinated. Together, we embarked on a heartwarming journey that took us through the picturesque little spots surrounding their family home. We picked apples from the trees, indulging in the crunchiest, juiciest, and most delicious apples we’ve ever tasted. We shared moments under the shade of granddad’s cherished maple tree, savoring the simple pleasures of life.
When we unveiled the sneak peek to Lizz and Caleb, they couldn’t wait to share it with her parents. Their response was nothing short of heartwarming. The sheer joy on Mr. Powers’ face as he marveled at how “normal” he looked in the photos was a poignant moment. It made us even more determined to recreate in each and every image during our meticulous editing process.
Lizz later reached out to express her deep gratitude for this experience. She emphasized how thankful she was for choosing us to photograph her family at this Petitcodiac family session. It was an honor for us to be part of this journey and capture these priceless moments for the Power family. As Mr. Power and his loved ones continue on their journey, we keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
In moments like these, we share this reminder of the power of photography to freeze time. We create lasting memories that bring comfort, solace, and hope during life’s most challenging moments. Each photograph stands as a testament to the resilience of family bonds and the beauty of capturing moments, no matter the circumstances.
We truly love exploring the properties of the families that we get to photograph. HERE is just another example of how much character is added to a gallery when YOU choose to include your personal life in your shoot.
