One of the most beautiful things about marriage is when you choose someone to spend the rest of your life with. You have no clue what challenges are in your future. We all hope that we pick that person that you can face any tough situation with and conquer it with grace and hold each other up. The true meaning of "For better or For worse."
The magical part is when you pick the person that holds you together and is worth holding it together for...
I would like to introduce you to the Campbell Family who was faced with something completely devastating and unimaginable tragedy.
A few months ago I received an email from Jeremy at my day job (Calgary Real Estate Board) looking for some guidance as they had lost their home and everything in it in a house fire. This hit heavy in my heart as I can't even begin to imagine what they must be going through. I assisted Jeremy in getting the information he needed for his insurance. Fast forward a few months and I still couldn't shake what they must be going through and Jeremy came into our office, we had a great chat and I checked in with him to see how him and his family were doing. I could just tell this had been devastating and an emotional journey. Even though he was keeping it all together I just knew they deserved a little something to brighten their day...
I approached Jeremy a few months later and asked if I could gift them a session with me. They were thrilled (And I was even more excited), we nailed down a location and time that worked with busy schedules. To say I was nervous was an understatement, what started as a small gesture suddenly weighed heavily on me. I needed to make sure these pictures are perfect and that this is a fun experience for them. I didn't sleep at all the night before knowing what I was about to do was important. When we arrived at location and I met Becky (Jeremy's Wife) I was instantly humbled and so happy I had chosen to do this. The Campbell family is one for the books because it is not just about the images it's also about the connection and I am pretty sure I got more out of this session than they did. I believe wholeheartedly in fate and I really think this family was meant to come into my life at this exact moment in theirs so we could make magic together.
Back to where this started... these two lovebirds had no clue when they got together what their future had in store for them, they are the perfect match for what was coming their way. You can see the strength in their marriage, It was so inspiring.
I was a ball of emotions after spending a short time with them... I am humbled and thank you to all of you for spending this time with me.
