Ash turned 30

Posted on September 8th, by Becca in Becca's life. 4 comments

Today my friend Ashley posted some pictures she took of me the other day to mark my 31st birthday.  I thought it would only be appropriate for me to send her a love letter back by posting some images I took at her 30th birthday party in April.  Ashley has a gift for creating beautiful experiences for people.  She blessed us all that night as she celebrated the culmination of 30 years of life.

This first photo is important.  I knew it was important as I shot it.  Ashley’s 29th year was deeply painful with the loss of her father.  As I watched Ashley and her husband Jeremy dance that night, I could tell that she was crying, and I knew that in  this moment, the whole year just sort of landed on her.  I think she took it all in, said goodbye, and looked forward.
