“The most beautiful people we
have known are those who
have known defeat, known
suffering, known struggle,
known loss, and have found
their way out of the depths.
These persons have an
appreciation, a sensitivity,
and an understanding of life
that fills them with
compassion, gentleness, and
a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen.”
This was probably the most special family session I photographed this year, and I was so honoured
that the Willsey family chose me to capture their beautiful family on such a special anniversary.
I believe the quote above helps to explain why their session felt so special to me.
They all suffered greatly when Lorna was diagnosed and living with MS.
She was then miraculously healed, and I believe this family no longer takes thing for granted
and loves just a little harder as a result.
