Possibly my favorite engagement session EVER!
I can't speak enough kind words about this couple! Madison and John are the BEST to be around. They are constantly laughing! I felt as if we had known each other forever!
Madison happens to be my mom's, best friend's niece. Did you follow that? I met Madison YEARS ago when we both were little nuggets and found social media a great way to keep up with each others lives! I sat down with John and Madison during their session to get to know them. I couldn't help but smile right along with them as they talked and joked with each other. They have the most infectious smiles.
John told me that he served in our military and spent time overseas. When coming home, John was in a severe car accident that nearly ended his life. He spent a lot of time in the hospital and in rehab trying to regain normal day to day function. He and Madison met shortly after his recovery and have journeyed together through some of the rehab and struggles. When you see them together, you can tell they were meant to be. You can quite literally feel the love they have for each other. They have such a joy for life and have agreed to make every moment matter.
My hope is that we all do that. You never know what your journey will be. So make the most of every moment you have. Take the time to love your partner, family and friends unconditionally and with an overwhelming joyous love like Madison and John have. When you see these pictures, my prayer is that you learn from their smiles. Learn from their love and carry that inspiration with you. I challenge you to live every moment with joy and gratitude.
