2 weeks ago I had a fun opportunity to take Senior pictures for one of my good friend’s daughters, Allison. number 1 I was blown away that they would even ask me to take on such a big job when I really don’t have a clue to what I’m doing. i love photography and try to learn and grow as much as I can without actually taking classes. but when it boils down to it… I just know what I want to see in my head. know what looks good to me. so I try to achieve that while having fun doing it.
Allison was so easy to work with. we met early that morning and again that evening and I could’ve taken pictures of her all day. talk about getting carried away in the moment… getting carried away by the perfect lighting that was coming through the lens. it was beautiful and a perfect day. i said goodbye to Nina, Allison, and her sister, Gianna around 7:30ish that evening. excited for her that in a year she will be graduating and thinking of all the possibilities that are to come.
then around 10am the following morning I got a call from Nina saying they had been in a bad car accident.
hit by a double cab truck flipping their SUV. Nina just kept telling me
“pray heather, pray.…” and so I did.
just like that, just that quick. i had been with them less than 24 hours, smiling joking with
Allison about the guy she’s dating and then to get that call.
Nina ended up with a broken wrist_ broke foot_ and a broken bone in her sternum.
Allison was bruised but fine. and Gianna had a tear in her abdomen that they had to do immediate surgery on.
thankfully, today they are all back home and recovering.
i’m celebrating with them today that the Lord protected and took care of them.
we serve a big God that is able to do far more than we could ever imagine.
and Allison I can’t wait to see you graduate and see all the Lord has planned for you.
I’m hoping to get back on a blogging schedule next week after the kids start school.
Happy weekend to you. :)
