Life is crazy and random yet there still seems to be a method to all of the madness. You don’t know who or what will impact your future, why loses seem so hard, or what the next yes or no may have in store for you. Have you ever listened to the Steve Jobs’ commencement speech where he talks about being able to connect the dots in your life? All the little points that seem random eventually tell your story. To quote him, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. You have to trust the dots will somehow connect in your future.” One of those dots for me is this sweet, precious, and adorable family.
I have known Sarah for YEARS! Actually, her mom hired this young and naive girl once as a teller. If her mom hadn’t of hired me, I would have never met my husband. I would have never had my two boys. Because I wouldn’t of had my boys, I may never have pursued photography. If I never pursued photography, then I would have never photographed Sarah’s wedding and other special moments in her life, like celebrating Eleanor’s first birthday. It’s a full circle moment every time I get to take photos for her and the dots seem so clear and precise.
These are sweet Eleanor’s first year photos. We opted for a short session (cause it is COLD outside!), but Eleanor was a trooper! Since these were taken right before Christmas, Sarah dressed her in a cute buffalo plaid dress with lace trim on the bottom and an adorable black bow and shoes. Isn’t she the cutest?!
What dots in your life can you see that have made you who you are? I would love to hear your stories!
