Emily and Sergio Sneak Peek and Monthly Goals! {Raleigh, NC Wedding Photographer}

I used to say that I never miss people. That was true at the time, but, one day something happened and I felt a new twinge of pain in my gut after driving away. It wasn’t the same eager run towards freedom that I was used to, it was sad and I never wanted to feel that way again. Unfortunately, it’s only increased since then. Something changes in you when you’ve had people show you the kind of love and support that I’ve been blessed to receive from friends, family, and one amazing husband. I was so lucky to make a trip down to Raleigh for the night last night to do Emily and Sergio’s engagement session. Just so happens Emily is sisters to one of my favorite friends in the world also, along with Sam, I have some other really dear friends living here and they all live this life together.

Seeing people who are so dear to me for only a blink of an eye, well, that’s much more difficult than one would imagine. I was supposed to be this rogue woman, moving from town to town never looking back. But, it seems like I’m moving from town to town and feeling that ache in my gut all the way to the next one.

How blessed I am to have people that I care for so deeply! A true gift.
