Family Session | Ashley Newman Photography {The Woodlands}

 

Can we just appreciate the summer sun here?! Gah!

Each family I encounter has a story to tell and this mama's story makes broken simply beautiful.

"Where there is no struggle, there is no strength" -Oprah

I've spent a lot of time attempting to put words to how I feel about this family and our time together. Type type type...delete delete delete. No session I have is simply a "session".
When she first approached me about pictures, her heart was raw but full of hope-- Ready to embrace the change that her life had undergone, ready to celebrate a new beginning.

Sarah, your family is perfect the way it is. You are stronger than you know, more brave than you give yourself credit for, and your children are a precious gift.

Hold tight to these moments. Memories of babies needing you to hold them because the grass itches their legs, of special nose kisses and tongues out instead of smiles, of rolling in grass and big dog pile hugs. Slow down and know that you are raising four amazing little souls.

This is the good stuff, friend, and I'm so honored to have been a part of it.

 

Ashley Newman Tip: 

Embrace whatever is happening in the moment- if your children are feeling grouchy, it's just roll with it! If they want to dance instead? Let's have a party! Try to remove your expectations and open your heart to the beauty of now- just as you are with your family.
