i adored meeting ashlie & anthony…we went to a beautiful family farm (what a treat!!) and of all the images, this one probably tied as a favorite because it speaks of holding those you love close. there’s something incredibly sweet and unassuming about these two and they seem perfectly content with one another’s company. ashlie & anthony, i’m glad to have met you a few weeks before you become mr & mrs…grateful for your warmth that made me feel instantly at ease by your side. i’m so hopeful that there are more moments to document your family as the years unfold. enjoy each day together (somehow, i already know you will)! warmly, -melanie-
we’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant.
you can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s
going to get on by itself. you’ve got to keep watering it. you’ve got to really look after it.
