A Farewell Story | Red Deer Family Photographer

I first told the story of my dear friends Kat & Aaron’s big move to Salt Spring Island back in May and now I have had the honour of telling Kat’s parents story. Their farm has been in the family since 1905 (home to 5 generations) and they have recently made the tough decision to sell their property – closing date was today! – to make the same move that Kat did.

It was a bitter sweet day filled with stories, jokes, chocolate, tears and horses. Kat’s brother and sister made the trip up from Vancouver just to say one final goodbye to the place they grew up. Abby said goodbye to her favourite pony although her new owners have agreed to weekly Skype calls – so cute!. I had a special request from Susan to get some shots of her husband in the barn, where he spent so much of his time….it was my most favourite moment of the day. I felt their sadness but their excitement for this new chapter was so very evident that it gave me butterflies. I can’t wait to come visit their new place this summer :)

Below is a photo that Kat sent me of her parents house being built, how cool is that?!

I have such an incredible opportunity to tell the stories of the ones that I love. The ones that inspire me on a daily basis and that truly just make my life better. Today is no exception. Lyndsey is fighting a hard fight but her positivity is radiant and no matter what is put in front of her, she faces it with strength and courage. Last May, I photographed Lyndsey and her family at the beginning of her battle, after a year of treatment they received some unfortunate news. The cancer has spread but she is still fighting hard and won't let anything stop her. Please check out her blog for a bit more of her story and where her health is ...
