But yet another fun couple that was full of life, and ready to take on the adventure of this shoot. I will admit, Jamie made my job way easy, she brought all the props. She had even more than you see in the pictures.I like someone with a lot of options.
This session did not start off the greatest, right when we arrived to our destination, it started to downpour. But, never fear, Ryan the meteorologist was there to save the day! He got out his handy-dandy iPhone and checked the radar. We could see we would have clear skies in approximately 15 minutes.So, we waited it out in the car, which was fun to get to know this awesome couple a little more.
We had some obstacles of drenched grass and way mugginess, but we made it work! And I will have to say, I love how this session turned out!!
Home is Where There is One to Love Us
by Charles Swain
Home’s not merely four square walls,
Though with pictures hung and gilded;
Home is where Affection calls–
Filled with shrines the Hearth had builded!
Home! Go watch the faithful dove,
Sailing ‘neath the heaven above us.
Home is where there’s one to love!
Home is where there’s one to love us!
Home’s not merely roof and room,
It needs something to endear it;
Home is where the heart can bloom,
Where there’s some kind lip to cheer it!
What is home with none to meet,
None to welcome, none to greet us?
Home is sweet, and only sweet,
Where there’s one we love to meet us!
Our homes should be sacred ground. We need to separate ourselves from the world, making our home stand out from others. This is a huge reason I chose to be a stay-at-home mom that runs a photography business. I want to be the one who is with my children all day ingraining truths from Scripture, and teaching them our Pociask values.
Sure, there are days when I want to pull my hair out and send Abigail to Nana’s house for the week, but I know parenting takes consistency, sacrifice, and time each day to get them to a place (hopefully) that honors God in their actions and choices each day. It most definitely is an honor that God gave me two children to raise up.
There are days I think there is just not enough time to teach them biblical principles, read books, edit pictures, keep up with my house….but somehow it always balances out, and I realize that if I am LIVING and WALKING in the truth each day, my children will see that, and I pray will want to be the same one day as well.
Home is where memories are made….lives are changed……smiles are given and received, and most importantly as Charles said, Where there’s one we love to meet us!
These two make me want to live each day to the fullest!
