Family Session

Ashley Newman Photography {Tuscaloosa, AL}

Vera is one of the first people that I latched on to in our move. She made it easy, with her gentle heart and unending grace. When she asked me to photograph her family, my heart leapt in my chest. YES! 
I met her at her home- we played, we chased animals (and babies), and we just enjoyed their property. They were them and I was just there to enjoy it. 
Vera shared the love she has of her family- not only in their visible connections, but with her words. 
"I love that our family is not perfect. I love that our life is messy and filled with challenges. I am thankful God loves us enough to bathe us in His Grace and Mercy each new day. I see His sovereign hand in everything and although hard to trust that plan many days I know that it's no mistake the Spinks' family are who we are for our good and His Glory. Crazy medical needs and all. We are perfectly imperfect." 

Vera shared with me her heart for advocating for her children, and her decision to choose joy every single day. What *I* loved most about sharing her session was the connection and love that came through her husband to her children. He was a gentle protector through our whole time together. This is a close knit family and I am overjoyed the invited me in.
