becca spears - oh parsons. oh jaclyn and nate. this is possibly one of the most beautiful storytelling portraits I have ever seen. Ash and Jer- you have this hard-to-grasp ability to tap into the supernatural- that quality of life at it's richest. Those most transcendent moments. You actually somehow can convey the depth and passion of that. It is very rare to see art imitate life that well. Thank you for sharing this. You made me fall in love with this family. You made me fall more in love with marriage and life.
