“Like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions, but our roots remain as one.” This weekend’s maternity session reminded me of this quote – of family. Family is where life begins and love never ends. And at the heart of it is always a woman. Over the years I have learned how important family is to me, but also that family is not always blood. It’s about the people in your life who want to be there. The ones who love you for who you are and care for the things and people that are important to you.
