Louisa Family Portraits in Fluvanna County
Though I have known this awesome couple since before they welcomed any of their children into the world, I had not seen them since they endured unimaginable tragedy with an accident involving their precious baby. And I know that trauma changes people; It tests faith, strength, and character. While shooting their portraits, I witnessed miracles: I saw a toddler who is full of life, having literally overcome death…and I saw light, love, and joy in every single member of this family. They are definitely the “coffee beans” and it was an honor for me to capture their family portraits!
“Am I like the coffee bean? The coffee bean actually changes hot water – the very circumstance that brings the adversity, the pain, the hardship – into something quite wonderful. When the water gets hot, it releases its fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you for the better.”
