Exmouth Beach Family Portrait Session - sneak peek

I had an excellent time with the Wilson Family for their second portrait session (their first was way before my blog was going!) the other day.

B & Z had a great time burning off some energy running up and down the sand dunes!

Thanks to you all

I want to thank all of you who took the time to offer condolences to me and to my family, especially those who have reached out to my Dad. It's meant a lot to know there are so many of you thinking of us.

I also want to double thank those of you who have gone out of your way to check in with me after the initial condolences - grief is ongoing and your continuing show of friendship and support has been invaluable.

And thanks to my fabulous clients for being patient as my processing and communication timelines have been pushed back over the past few weeks. I am back in the swing now and expect to clear my backlog of all those things you are waiting on by the end of next weekend. Thank you guys, too, for your hugs, emails, messages and phone calls - makes me love you even more!

My Grandmother brought such joy to me, I am truly lucky to have her as such a big part of my life.

My Grandmother

My Grandmother died yesterday.

I'm at a loss on what to say as a tribute as everything I try to put down seems awkward and incomplete and totally inadequate. The feelings are still too raw and too close to the surface for me to start sharing all the wonderful times we had, all the strength she gave to me and all the love I have in my heart for her. I'm holding those things close for now.

I loved her beyond measure and she was enormous part of my life. I will miss her terribly. Her passing leaves an huge hole in my life, my heart, my soul. She was such an incredible lady to me.

Her love and support and belief in me were some of the most powerful forces guiding me as I stumble along life's path.

She thought I was better than I am, stronger than I could ever be and kinder & more generous than I ever showed.

I aspire to make her proud and to be even half the person she saw.

I love you, Grandma.
