A little background on this next session I am about to share. The S Family was the very first session I did after taking a two month break to stay home and help my husband heal. Leaving my family after being through such a traumatic experience left me feeling vulnerable. I did not have an ounce of confidence in me. I felt disconnected and scared walking in door. I had isolated myself so much in the two months that I felt what made my sessions so personal in the past, was not going to happen.
What I didn't know is that Elizabeth is best friends with a client I adore so she had known that my husband had just suffered from a brain aneurysm. After saying hello to her beautiful family I laid it on the line to Elizabeth. "I may be a little rough around the edges, and seem awkward, but I promise that I am here (mentally) and that we will have a wonderful session".
What happened next makes me realize again that people are brought together not by chance. Elizabeth had one of her best friends stop over whom shared a similar traumatic experience, and then Elizabeth shared a story of loss tied with courage. The stories are each their own, I will not share them. Yet, I will say that my feelings were validated. It was what starting opening the "me" back up. It helped me connect.
In the past six months since our session the amount of gratitude I have towards Elizabeth, her friend and her family is something I cannot define.
I am so proud of these images. The love each of them have for one another is easy to see. I hope you love them as much as I do....
