CHICAGO FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER: SUMMER SUNSET SESSION: MELISSA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY: RYLAND
Back in the day, when I’d house-sit for her family when her parents would go out of town, I’d pick her up each day from horseback riding. Her mom owns a stable, and now she herself runs an equestrian veterinary clinic. (We even had to change plans for the day we originally were gonna do this shoot because she had to turn around in an emergency to save a horses life. She’s kinda BA but in the softest way. I may or may not have contacted her in panic when I knew my cat was dying, (a little different than a horse 🤣) But her response was everything. I always knew she’d be good with animals, but that was proof she’d be good with people. Court & Cam, you're doing great! Not the first year you ever could have predicted, but what a milestone to stop and resonate on what made this year so special for your family. The pandemic doesn't define your year. Ryland does. And how sweet of a reminder he is of that!
