This batch of pictures means so much to me! Cindy DeMond is a very special childhood friend. Here she is with her Mom, Diane and her daughter, Whitney. They braved some pretty raw temperatures to complete this shoot. We were all shivering by the end but it was worth it for sure!
Aren't they beautiful?
Cindy's family suffered the loss of their beloved father, husband and grandfather 3 short years ago. The redbird atop the frame is a reminder of him...a bird watcher and bird lover. Cardinals often show up and bring the DeMonds a reminder that their Dad is in heaven watching over them. He and my own father were fast friends and sang gospel music together for many years. They are both loved and cherished even though they are not with us here on earth.
My prayer for this family is that they never stop living the legacy their father left...faith in God, love of family and commitment to each other.
