The last family photo

SOMETIMES YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THE VALUE OF A MOMENT UNTIL IT BECOMES A MEMORY. ~ DR. SUESS

This lovely lady contacted me to book a family photo session last year. She wanted to include her elderly mum, her son and his young family. The day of our shoot was sunny and warm and we went for a walk in the park. We got wonderful photographs which they really loved. We stayed in touch. I saw this lady again on Monday and found out that her mum had just passed away days ago. I learnt that this last family photograph we created, will join this beautiful soul on her last journey. What an honour this is for me, I can’t even begin to describe.

Chances are big, that we will experience a loss of someone we love, and there is little we can do about it.

This last family photograph we created then, what do you think it is worth now? what meaning does it have, now, that it can never be recreated?

Know this, there has never been a person who regretted getting this last family photograph, but there is a big crowd of people who will always regret not getting it.
