Maternity: Ashley, Michael, and Kenley
It would be nearly impossible for an outsider to understand my relationship with Ashley. I've "known" her for close to three years. We know a lot about each other. We have watched each others kids grow. We have watched each other succeed as mothers even when we felt like we were failing. We have lifted each other up when we felt down. There has been happiness, sadness, drama, laughter, disbelief, disgust, joy, pride, and every other thing you could think of in the past three years. But until a month ago we had never met in person. We belong to a special group of women. We are moms, we are wives, we are friends, we are women. We hold each other up when we can't stand on our own. We give advice and we listen. We meet online, and sometimes in person (for those of us lucky enough to), and we are a large group of moms who truly love and respect each other. I'm sure I can speak for Ashley in saying that we as moms are so truly blessed to have found each other in such an amazing group of extraordinary women.
With all of that being said it was amazing getting to meet Ashley in person. I wouldn't normally bring my family along with me to a session but since I drove several hours to be able to do this session they came along and to be quite honest I wanted her and Kenley to be able to meet my boys because we all feel so intertwined. I am so happy I got to work with them and can't wait to do their newborn session.
The kiddos met and instantly started holding hands, it really was the sweetest thing ever.
Have a fantastic week everyone!-Rachael
