When your best friend, that you have known your WHOLE life, calls you up and says "We NEED to have family photos done by a professional...feel up for it?" Yet the weather is forecasted at 14-28 degrees with possible snow and ice. What do you do....
Oh you say "HECK YES!"
It was seriously 26-ish degrees outside with light snow flurries off and on the day we set it all up, but it didn't matter. It was Thanksgiving, and my beautiful friend and her family had had a hard year full of cancer treatments, hospital visits, and lots of prayer. Her uncle that had raised her and her brother were fighting battles, and this was the best time to get photos done. To celebrate family.
Despite the cold, everyone threw off their coats and gloves to strike a pose for the camera. Huge smiles on their faces. Cold fingers and toes, but warm hearts all around.
Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for all our blessings, and the Fletcher family has so much to be thankful for. They have an amazing family full of love. What more could anyone want in life?
Please enjoy a few of my favorites from this special family session...in the super cold of the Nebraska countryside.
