Family photos...we all love them and yet at the same time dread having them taken. But no family agonizes over this quintessential life event more than a family who has lost a beloved member. The thought of recording this moment in time without them is absolutely unimaginable; as if accepting their absence and smiling about it.
The heartbreaking reality of The Garlick Press family photos continuing without The Red One was inconceivable...until last week. It has taken us over three years to muster the courage...and I knew my very talented friend Michelle was the one I could trust with this exceptionally tender task.
Hands down...no question about it...the most adorable thing to happen in the month of July was this moment.
This is the family of The Garlick Press. I adore each and every single one of them. Our faces twinkle with joy and smiles and laughs...overshadowing the dark pain and sorrow from the past few years. My family is my life, my joy, and my hope for tomorrow! May yours be also...
