Father's Day Photo Shoot

It's no secret that I miss my dad sooo much. If you are my FB friend, you will see that I speak of him often. Father's Day is always a day I dread since losing my dad. I know I should rejoice in the fact that he is in Heaven and on most days I do, but Father's Day I allow myself to just feel.

Paige and my brother dread the day as well. This year, Paige asked me if we could do a photo shoot and if she could style it and pick the location. I was so excited to see what she came up with. Well, she did a GREAT job. She chose some of my dad's clothing and then we went to the Goodwill to pick up a pair of old frames to complete the look. She wanted to go to our local high school and take pictures on the track.

Before we went to our shoot, my brother came over and we all laughed and remembered funny times with my dad. It was very cathartic. I love, love, love my family!!!

The girl certainly has style....and the rockin 'tude to go with the outfit! LOVE THESE!

I know yesterday must have been tough for your family... I can't even imagine the grief, but it sounds and looks like your Daddy would have been proud to know that his two girls were doing something so special in his honor.

Have a great week~

I love it Missy. I love how you captured gorgeous, spunky Paige, brought in the memories of your precious father by her stylin' with his clothes & accessories...and how you all spent what could be a very sad day together laughing at memories, that's exactly what he would want you all to do. I know he looks down very proud of all of you and how you have continue to carry on despite the pain.
