Extraordinary Ordinary

The ordinary moments that weave together our extraordinary life are sewn together with the extremes of that which makes us feel. Moments of comfort and enjoyment shaded with moments of frustration and discomfort.  Happiness coupled with sadness, overwhelming joy that explodes our heart into a million different pieces.  Children have a way of changing our expected to an unexpectedness that touches the tenderness of our hearts in a way that only the innocence of childhood can do.  We can take joy in that and begin to cherish the preciousness that is our life as it is.  Being mindful of our ups and downs, our failures and successes, and cherishing them all in the story that is our life.  Life is a gift, the most treasured gift that we are given and I believe that it should be celebrated in its rawest of form, in every moment that allows our hearts to feel.

This sweet family has entered a space into my heart that I will continuously be grateful for.  Trusting me to document their most treasured moments, to tell their story over the last several years.  This particular shoot was to celebrate their sweet little boy and his huge milestone of turning one at the very location in which they were married.  When my clients… scratch that… when my friends write these words,  “Oh Lacey…you make my heart happy! By far one of the hardest photo shoots to date…from 100 degree weather, busy 1 year-old, sassy 7 year-old and ripping my dress in front of everyone – you still captured the best moments! Thank you!”  I am filled with a gratitude that I am invited in to their family’s sacred space and have the honor of capturing their happiness.  I would never be able to do this without the love and support of the people behind my lens.  Vanek family,  thank you.  You make my heart happy.
