This Image Evoked So Many Emotions For Me | Orange County Child Photographer

November 26, 2011

We recently returned from a wonderful vacation on the island of Kauai. One of my favorite places in the entire world.  I spent most of my summers there while growing up and both my parents were born and raised on the island of Kauai.  When my mom passed away several years ago we sprinkled her ashes there as this was her wish.  The island is such a spiritual place for me.  One early morning I took my kids to one of the beautiful beaches there and my daughter was just playing and walking on the beach.  I took this capture and it has such an ethereal feel to it. I felt my sweet mom was watching over my darling daughter.  They never had the chance to meet each other but I know my children would have adored her as much I did.  My mom always wanted grandchildren and she pretty much gave up the idea as none of my sisters or I had children before she passed.   I know she sees them everyday and is always with us in a higher sense. This image is a reminder to me of that. Thank you mom for being who you are….

    This image makes me cry. In a good way. I’m so saddened for your loss, and fear the day I have to sprinkle my mom’s ashes. But, I’m happy for you too. Happy that she watches over you. Happy that your love for her is being passed down to your own children. I love that Kauai provides you so much peace and spirituality to you. This image is gorgeous. And so are you.
